A Perfect Illustration Why Standing Stubble is Essential for Winter Wheat

| 1 Comment

Sometimes a picture is worth a thousands words. The photo below of the winter wheat variety trial on the Northwest Research & Outreach Center was taken yesterday afternoon as temperatures were a balmy 39F. The warm temperatures over the past few days have melted the little snow we have had in the surrounding fields. The winter wheat trial was still blanketed, thereby protecting the seedlings.
