We know that a farmer always wants the best wheat crop they can possibly get and we strive to help farmers achieve the maximum yield efficiently. The low wheat prices demand a higher yielding crop that can with stand the drought we have had in our area. On May 24th BZ Bee Inc. hosted a wheat plot tour in conjunction with Kauffman seeds.
Tom Clayman from Kauffman seeds went through all of the varieties chosen in the test plot line up. He started off the night by explaining what all the white wheat heads meant, he explained that it was freeze damage. To illustrate his point Tom pulled a plant to show us the roots, the bottom of the roots and part way up the stalk was a black color caused by the freeze. We had a very cold winter that seemed to never warm up and never seemed to end. This put a hard impact on our wheat crops this year.
As we head into harvest, it is important to think ahead to the kind of wheat you want to plant and harvest next year. We are being told there will be a shortage of seed wheat this year so if you are wanting a particular variety it is never too early to call and reserve your seed wheat. We can also custom blend seed wheat.
