Not much wheat was planted this year and much was reported as deferred acres. If and when it gets dry enough to get on the wheat, do it as quick as you can. There may have not been enough time to put on any fall nitrogen, so you may have to put it on in the spring – 120–150 lbs. If rain and wet spring continue, you are looking at a fungicide treatment and weed control. Wheat is cash in the summer. With planting date, treated seed, proper fertility, proper seeding rates, and fungicides, 80 to 100 bushels per acre can be obtained.

With wheat, like any other crop, the more management, the better the return. Go to the North Carolina State Small Grains portal for great information on varieties, fertility, planting dates, and many other great inputs on wheat.
