Winter crops such as winter wheat and hybrid fall rye can produce a bit more straw per ac compared to spring wheats. If you are on dryland and need the straw that can help you, and on irrigation if selling straw, the winter crops can make you more $ per ac.
The price of winter wheat / feed wheat is pretty close to CWRS this fall making winter wheat look pretty good in this chart. Winter wheat yields can be 20% more vs spring wheats as well.
The straw yield can be about double that of spring wheat due to taller plants and more tillers.
Thanks to Mitch Bos for helping me with these numbers.
Straw does have a nutrient value, here are links to information on that:
