rye in wheat country

As I do not grow wheat, nor do any of my neighbors grow wheat for grain, Rye caryover does not bother me.  There is some wheat grown about 20 miles north of me in Southdakota, however I don't feel I would be any threat to those guys fields.

Rye in wheat country has always been a mistake if it goes to seed at all.  It has the same life cycle as wheat and prolific   You cannot get rid of it once it is there.  Not as bad as Johnson Grass.  But not good. 

We had the very same "cover crop" promotions in the early 1980's.  Neighbor decided to raise a circle of rye for resale and personal use in the future.  We can still see it in the road ditches and within a mile of that quarter.  Took years to clean it up.  He rotated it out because every wheat crop he planted there for several years got rejected or had a heavy dock.
