Some wheat fields in Kansas have had poor emergence or none at all. The potential consequences of the delayed progress of the Kansas wheat crop during October include greater exposure to winterkill, delayed crop cycle for grain filling under warmer conditions, and a lower yield potential due to decreased fall tillering. Can these fields still produce a good yield? Read more in this article.
Many wheat fields around Kansas emerged later than desired due to extremely dry soil conditions in the fall. What are the expectations for late-emerged wheat and what factors contribute to the expected yield potential for those fields?
Many wheat fields in Kansas failed to emerge in the fall of 2022. Emergence has been highly variable all winter and spring, and some fields are still trying to emerge. Late-emerged winter wheat has considerably less yield potential than a crop that emerged at the optimum time.
