  1. Fertilization

    https://agcrops.osu.edu/node/4389

    A successful soil fertility program for wheat requires knowledge of a field’s yield potential and a recent soil test. The soil test will provide current levels of phosphorus and potassium in the soil and the soil pH. Soil pH will assist in determining the ...

  2. Producing Wheat in 15-Inch Rows

    https://agcrops.osu.edu/node/4388

    Growers are interested in wide-row wheat production due to reductions in equipment inventory (lack of  grain drill) and to allow intercropping of soybean into wheat. Wheat row spacing work conducted during the 2012-2013 and 2013-2014 growing seasons indic ...

  3. Seeding Practices

    https://agcrops.osu.edu/node/4387

    When planting at the proper time and into soil that is not too wet, seed should be planted 1.5-inches deep. Row width should be 6 to 8 inches. Planting by bushels per acre is very inaccurate due to variability in seed size from year to year and from one v ...

  4. Planting Date

    https://agcrops.osu.edu/node/4386

    Avoid planting wheat prior to the  fly-safe date  because of the possibility of early establishment of foliar fungal diseases and severe damage by barley yellow dwarf virus and Hessian fly (Figure 6-1). The best time for seeding is a 10-day period startin ...

  5. Land Selection and Preparation

    https://agcrops.osu.edu/node/4385

    Wheat grows well in a range of soil types; however, well-drained soils with medium to fine texture produce the highest yields in Ohio. Adequate drainage is essential; thus, tiling poorly drained fields is important. Plan the crop-rotation sequence far eno ...

  6. Crop Rotation

    https://agcrops.osu.edu/node/4384

    Plant wheat following soybeans. A three-year rotation of corn-soybean-wheat appears to be optimum for sustained yield of all three crops. Crop rotation is the most effective method to reduce pathogen populations that affect the three crops in the sequence ...

  7. High-Quality Seed and Seed Treatment

    https://agcrops.osu.edu/node/4383

    Purchase only high-quality seed that has been thoroughly cleaned to remove shriveled kernels and that has a germination of 90 percent or better. All seed should be treated with a seed-treatment fungicide to control seed-borne diseases such as loose smut, ...

  8. Variety Selection

    https://agcrops.osu.edu/node/4382

    The Ohio Wheat Performance Test is conducted annually to measure yield and other agronomic characteristics important to producers. Information on wheat variety performance can be obtained in the annual  Ohio Wheat Performance Test, Ohio State University H ...

  9. Weed Control

    https://agcrops.osu.edu/node/4380

    Specific chemical weed control recommendations can be found in the Weed Control Guide, Extension Bulletin 789, available at all County Extension offices and online at CFAES publications at:  estore.osu-extension.org/. ...

  10. Insect Control

    https://agcrops.osu.edu/node/4379

    Insect pests in soybean are sporadic but can be yield-limiting when their populations do build. It is difficult to predict when and where insects may become a problem in soybean, so regular scouting is important. Timely foliar insecticide applications at ...
