About the Trial:
•Seeded late April meaning they were at the perfect time to be impacted by the heat in late June.
•Yields, yield differences, standability may be impacted vs other seasons
•Keep in mind this is not scientific or replicated and is on irrigation
•Dry land recommendations may be different
•The plots were shorter due to heat stunting
•Plots had about 1' of rain on them at maturity.
•Thanks to P & H Vulcan & Cargill Lethbridge for grading
•Flax stubble, some tillage = wind erosion,
•30 plants target on barley (but 1 Bill Coors 100 at 20 plants) = 121 lbs to 184 lbper ac
•40 plants for wheat – 161 to 233 lbs per ac
•April 10 300 lbs 46-0-0
•April 12 120 lbs per ac 11-52 and tilled in
•April 29 seeded.
•June 8 modus stellar and axial
•July 2, prosaro xtr
•Extreme heat in June impacted the plots as the 2 row barley did not head past the boot stage and lodging was not a factor in the crop
Wheatland VB was the leader for HRS wheat with Russel VB, LeRoy VB and Redberry very close.
For Durum Succeed VB and Stronghold where the leaders with Grainland and Alloy very close
For barley it was a tight group other than AB Tofield 6 row
