The Economic Viability of Winter Wheat
Thursday, April 22, noon
With: Cody Creech, Dryland Systems Cropping Specialist, Nebraska Extension; Dave Petersen, Area Claims Manager, Rural Community Insurance Services; and Cory Walters, Associate Professor and Grain Economist, UNL Agricultural Economics.
Wheat is just emerging from dormancy and growers are getting their first look at how the crop faired through the winter months. Wheat fields planted behind fallow emerged in the fall and have established well. Depleted soil water and dry conditions has slowed wheat emergence in fields that have been continuously cropped.
