1st Annual Winter Wheat Works Initiative Workshop – Feb. 1, 2018
Positioning your farm to manage manure, control tough weeds, and improve soil health are just some of the advantages to growing winter wheat in Eastern Nebraska. The winter wheat varieties planted in eastern Nebraska today can yield upward of 140 bu/ac under good management and weather. While the potential for top yields is important, it’s not yield alone that makes winter wheat profitable. Growers can add value through increased revenue, reduced costs, improved pest management, and spreading their workload.
