Time to plant winter wheat in northern Illinois

Posted by Russel Higgins - Soybeans

Despite our best planning, using early maturing soybean variety (group 1.8) and planting as soon as we could this spring. Our plot that will be used for our winter wheat trials by Illinois variety testing did not mature in time for ideal planting of the wheat crop. NIARC research agronomist Greg Steckel solved the problem by chopping soybean in an area large enough to accommodate the wheat trials that are expected to be planted this week.
