We use about 100 pds per acre and or 100 for even a 3/4 acre....and I buy feed wheat, not seed wheat.

You do know that feed wheat is absolutely loaded with weed seed don't you? I now have weeds that aren't even native in my area due to planting feed wheat in my plots.

Yes Bsk....but in wayne county we are the garden of all weeds so we are kind of used to it. We try to plant later and closer to frost but I can tell you our largest weed enemy is sedge or sage grass it absolutely rules the cutover with those large domination tubers. We fight that as much as anything and do not plant summer fields due to this problem.....the clover is a extra benefit on fields where the shade protects it somewhat. The deer quit pounding our wheat/oat/ fields upon april when the honeysuckle and greenbriar and blackberry start leafing out. then they stay on that stuff all summer until the acorns start hitting the ground. Wish I had more resources , we would do much more, but we do what we can . Love it !

Anderson's Grain Group in Paris has wheat for $0.17 / lb. I planted it last week. No rain, but it has already started growing just from soil moisture.


As a follow up, the cheap seed germinated very well. My fields are already green and growing wheat.
