The wet weather in much of Kansas in June caused quite a bit of volunteer wheat to emerge and grow rapidly. Any volunteer wheat should be controlled soon to protect the state’s 2014/15 wheat crop that will be planted this fall.
Nebraska growers use seeding rates for winter wheat that vary from 30 to 180 lb per acre (320,000 to almost 3,000,000 seeds per acre). The lower rates are most common in drier areas.
As producers start thinking about anhydrous application for wheat this fall, there are a few basic points which they should keep in mind, especially regarding safety. Ammonia is a hazardous material and safety should be the highest priority of the operator.

A larger IBC forecast also weighed on the wheat markets. There was little fresh news about the Ukraine-Russia situation, which may undercut Thursday’s late rally. In addition, the IGC also boosted its 2014 global wheat production forecast 11.0 million to 713 million tonnes. Thus, wheat futures moved mostly lower to end the week. September CBOT wheat fell 6.25 cents to $5.5025/bushel at its Friday settlement, while September KC wheat dove 8.75 cents to $6.2625/bushel, but September MWE wheat rose 3.0 to $6.15.
