An Interesting Observation: Spring Wheat Volunteers that Survived Winter

| Leave a comment

I have received reports and observed it myself - there is a lot of volunteer spring wheat that has survived the winter and is happily growing right this moment in some fields in the region (Photos1 and 2). Interestingly, it appears to be limited to certain varieties. The HRSW variety 'Faller' has been positively identified as a variety that is showing this survival. I'm interested to hear whether you have fields in which volunteer spring wheat survived the winter and which varieties, other than Faller, are in those fields. Simply e-mail (wiers002@umn.edu) me or call me (218-281-8629).
