The Wheat is Up!

Above:  From eye level it is difficult to distinguish what is wheat and what is volunteer barley, but there are definitely rows of narrow green wheat sprouting in the field that was planted with the Twin Disc Air Drill from Amity Technologies. 
Above:  A closer look reveals the tender looking sprouts of wheat.
Above:  We're counting on the barley straw to catch snow and keep the roots of the wheat snug and warm through the winter.
Above:  October was not conducive to germination and growth. The soil temperature in late October dipped below 40 degrees fahrenheit. 
Above:  Farming is an ever changing adventure in GriggsDakota and we are excited to see how this develops in the Spring of 2010!
