Hrww planting conditions

Well after a historical hard red winter wheat failure, conditions are dry and for now we are just covering up the seed!! World awash of wheat??? How are conditions in your area?? North central oklahoma here dry, even hard ground will blow if winds come up!! Powder dry I should say. Most are waiting still. Planted 741 acres last 10 to 12 days !! Coming up very uneven!!! Going to cows and calves !!! But need rain for this to work also ??? Joy joy joy.

Re: Hrww planting conditions

West of you in panhandle, we are planting with some spotty moisture and getting wheat up.  Lots of bare ground getting planted.  I am anxious to see how many irrigated corn circles get planted back to wheat??

It's good going here in ontario where beans are mature.

Dry down 3" over there?

Re: Hrww planting conditions

Better than that this year.  We have over a foot of subsoil moisture most places and 2 ft in areas.  Assuming east of us better but it doesn't sound that way.

I am looking for a lot of wheat to go in on corn acres for 2015 in our marginal water irrigation with these corn prices.

 

August gave us some rains.

Re: Hrww planting conditions

Hrw should generate massive acres due to nothing more than fed crop ins set at $6.32. RA insurance with the 11% buy up is getting 3/4 of my nw ks acres
Four ft of subsoil moisture and is the absolute least cost to plant seems to Be the only profitable crop out there right now. Drill to start tomorrow...

Re: Hrww planting conditions

Finished drilling on Thursday with all the Wheat. We've finally got favorable fall seeding conditions and have good topsoil moisture everywhere. Haven't probed for subsoil moisture, but with the moisture we received we should have more than we've had for a few years.

Used an air-seeder this year as opposed to a box drill and therefore had to switch from liquid starter to a dry blend. Curious as to how the wheat will emerge with the new setup. With new equipment, seems like the first season has the potential to be the best or the worst, and in certain instances, it could be both.
