Field Notes

January 2018 CONDITIONS: Very cold temperatures may have damaged winter wheat in the central region of the southern plains, where a clear majority of the 2018 wheat crop was sown late due to multiple rain delays at peak planting time. The cold ambient temperatures around the beginning of the year may have affected maybe a fourth of hard red winter wheat country—especially where small, thin wheat stands weren’t covered with protective snowfall. University specialists say milder soil temperatures could also have buffered the crop against winter injury, though the dryness of the soils would not have been helpful in winterkill defense. Specifics on the extent of the damage will emerge later in the season—look for leaf dieback come spring.
