Intensive Winter Wheat Management

Shawn Conley, State Soybean and Small Grains Specialist
John Gaska, Senior Outreach Specialist

A research trial was initiated at the Arlington Agricultural Research Station to assess the impact of various management levels (Table 1) on the yield, grain quality, and disease incidence of 14 soft red winter wheat varieties. Management levels were stair-stepped with increasing intensity of inputs. Each management step increased yield, however growers should verify individual farm gate input prices to see if yield increases had a positive ROI.
