Wheat is Growing
I spotted several fields of wheat that are already up today. Conditions are ideal except we are very much ahead of the Hessian Fly free date. Hessian Flies may not be a problem but there may be other reasons to delay wheat planting. I will let Robert Bellm fill you in. I will also tell you that early planting of wheat can increase yield, but not without risk. Also consider your crop insurance requirements for planting date.
