The need for volunteer wheat control
What if the volunteer has not come up yet because of dry conditions? In this case, the volunteer may emerge at the same time the planted wheat emerges – after the next good rain event. Volunteer that does not emerge until the time planted wheat emerges, or even later, does not need to be controlled.
If the volunteer emerges shortly before wheat is planted, it’s probably still a good idea to get it controlled and wait two weeks after the volunteer wheat has died before planting – although late-emerging volunteer is less of a threat to harbor pests and diseases than earlier-emerging volunteer. Late-emerging volunteer provides a green bridge for a much shorter period of time.
Where volunteer is present before wheat planting, landowners and producers should do themselves and all their neighbors a favor, and control the volunteer two weeks before the wheat is planted.
