Overview

Winter wheat is a variety of wheat planted in the fall and harvested the following spring. It develops vegetative growth prior to winter, vernalizes, and then develops a grain crop in the spring. Typically planted from September to November in the Upper Midwest, winter wheat is often harvested as a cash crop or used as a cover crop. Its advantages as a cover crop include helping prevent soil erosion and outcompeting weed species. Winter wheat prefers well drained, fertile soils. The variety of this winter wheat may change throughout the season or from year-to-year. For this reason, it may be better suited to those producers who are not concerned with variety. We offer other certified winter wheat varieties for those producers concerned with varietal consistency.
