Harvesting Pintos and Prepping for Spring Wheat Planting

I still can’t believe we were able to wrap up wheat harvest in the month of August, especially considering how late crops went in the ground this year. A slight update from my previous post: We ended up yielding between 60 and 80 bu/A, with SY Soren leading the AgriPro® varieties that we planted.

As far as wheat crops go, we’re just about getting into our quiet time. Because it’s too far north for winter crops, all that’s left to do in the field for 2013 is harvest pinto beans – which we’ll wrap up in the next few days – and apply fertilizer before the winter respite. Our big next step is deciding which varieties to plant for next year, but that won’t be until November after our seed sales kick-off meeting.
