WELL IM LEAVIN FOR OHIO JUST AFTER LABOR DAY WEEKEND AND WILL NOT BE HOME TILL MID OCT. I REALLY WANT TO PLANT THIS WEEK JUST INCASE IM LATE GETTIN HOME. LAST YEAR I WAS LATE AND THE WHEAT ONLY CAME UP 2-3 INCHES BEFORE THE COLD GOT IT. ILL PLANT NOW AND IF IT DOESNT WORK OUT ILL REPLANT WHEN I GET HOME


Although I can get to my property fairly frequently, I'm probably going to do something similar. I'm going to broadcast a lot of cheap wheat seed, and if it gets rained on and grows, great. If not, well I'm not out much monetarily. If the wheat lives, I can always add more and different seeds to the plots once rains become more regular. I've already burned down my plots with Gly 4.

Late summer and early fall are the time to plant cereal grains. They are a fall/winter/spring plant.

However, unless you have adequate soil moisture when planting, you are throwing your moeyy away. The plants will not germinate or grow.

I'm going to watch the weather closely, and if it looks like we might get rain this weekend, I'll take the chance with winter wheat late in the week because it is so cheap (generally no more than $15 for 100 pounds of seed). A planting "failure would cost that much. But I will wait with the more expensive plants until we've had adequate rainfall.

Rico,

I wouldn't recommend planting until soil moisture improves significantly, even if that means not planting until mid-October. I will wait that long if that's what it takes. Planting into dry soil means you just threw all your seed away and you'll have to buy it all again.


ok i will.. i tried to work the soil a little bit but it's just to hard.
