I walked through Brian's wheat plot 2 weeks ago and thought "Wow, there is a lot of wheat here". My thinking was it would make 110 bu easy, maybe 120 bu if I put on some rosy glasses. I was wrong. We took it off yesterday and here are the results.
Pioneer 25R56 14.6% 127.8 bu/acre
Hyland Branson 14.2% 118.0 bu/acre
Pioneer 25R40 14.4% 123.1 bu/acre
This plot was planted on October 9.
N rate - 120 lbs as 28%
Herbicide - Buctril M
Fungicides - Stratego with the Buctril
- Prosaro at heading
25R40 is a new variety from Pioneer that is shorter in height, much like 25R47. This means we may be able to push it even higher with additional management like increased seeding rates, extra N and fungicides.
