Summer. It’s a wonderful time of year. A time for BBQ’s, ice cold watermelon, and lemonade shake-ups. It’s also the time of year to work on those tan lines (and those muscles) on the back of a hay rack, and for some it’s a time to experiment with new crops. Crops such as emmer wheat and 4010 forage peas.
Some of you may remember this video of one of our customers, Mark Doudlah, explaining why he incorporated 4010 forage peas into his rotation last year, and this year, he’s adding emmer wheat into the mix.
To get this blend off to a good start, Doudlah used Myco Seed Treat, and at early spring green up, applied Bio Humus to help anchor the nitrogen. After flag leaf, he’ll do a foliar of SP-1, Pillar 15, Dramm E, and Potassium Sulfate.
We’re looking forward to seeing how his emmer wheat yields at the end of the season. And as always would be happy to assist you in any fertility concerns you may have.
