A Perfect Illustration Why Standing Stubble is Essential for Winter Wheat

Jochum Wiersma, Small grain specialist


Sometimes a picture is worth a thousands words. This photo of the winter wheat variety trial on the Northwest Research & Outreach Center was taken on January 10, 2012 in the afternoon as temperatures were a balmy 39°F. The warm temperatures over the previous few days had melted the little snow we had in the surrounding fields. The winter wheat trial was still blanketed, thereby protecting the seedlings.
