2019 Kentucky Small Grains Variety Performance Test
7/12/2019 (new)

 UK Authors: Bill Bruening, John Connelly,
 Departments: Plant and Soil Sciences
 Series: Progress Report (PR series)
 Tags: farm crops, grain crops, research,

The 2019 soft red winter wheat growing season ended with Kentucky farmers harvesting approximately 340,000 acres of the 450,000 acres planted, for a total production of 26.2 million bushels of grain. An average yield of 77 bushels per acre was estimated by NASS. The acreage not harvested for grain was primarily used for forage production and cover cropping.

The 2018 soft red winter wheat growing season ended with Kentucky farmers harvesting approximately 300,000 acres of the 440,000 acres planted, for a total production of 24 million bushels of grain. An average yield of 80 bushels per acre was estimated by NASS, but that figure may be reduced due to the shorter seed filling period associated with persistent high temperatures in May. The acreage not harvested for grain was primarily used for forage production and cover cropping.

Impact of Climate Change on Wheat Production in Kentucky: Plant and Soil Sciences Research Report (vol. 3, no. 3, 2014)
9/8/2014 (new)

 UK Authors: Chad Lee, Rebecca McCulley,
 Departments: Plant and Soil Sciences
 Series:
 Tags:

Soft red winter wheat is one of the major row crops in Kentucky, along with corn and soybean. Climate change and variability have the potential to significantly impact this important economic enterprise within our state. Perhaps no year in recent history has seen as dramatic a negative impact of weather on annual crop yields as 2012. Kentucky experienced above normal temperatures during late winter and early spring that advanced wheat growth beyond normal levels. The warm weather was followed by a late spring freeze that severely damaged wheat yields. Following the late freeze, above normal spring temperatures encouraged farmers to plant corn early and most of the crop had an excellent start to the season. However, spring was followed by some of the hottest and driest weather in 50 to 70 years, depending on the location in Kentucky, and corn yields were devastated. Conversely, 2013 was relatively wet and cooler for most of the wheat, corn and soybean growing season, resulting in excellent yields of all three crops.

Comparing No-Till and Tilled Wheat in Kentucky
8/26/2009 (new)

 UK Authors: Dottie Call, Larry Grabau, John
 Departments: Entomology, Plant and Soil Sciences,
 Series: Interdepartmental (ID series)
 Tags: farm crops, grain crops, small grains

Historically, wheat planting in Kentucky has involved tillage. With conventional tillage practices, most residues from the previous crop are cut and buried prior to seeding wheat. No-till wheat planting eliminates tillage and reduces soil erosion, particularly on sloping soils, as well as reducing labor, machinery, and energy costs.
