Controlling volunteer wheat key to crop sucess

It happens every spring.

A hailstorm wipes out a wheat crop just a few weeks short of harvest. Perhaps there's some shattering. Maybe even a late freeze.

It just always appears that something bad affects some part of a producer's wheat crop.

When it happens, expect the result to be a stand of volunteer wheat in summer and fall.

Even if a producer has a good stand of wheat now, it's not too early to plan for controlling volunteer. Recent problems with wheat streak mosaic, High Plains virus, and triticum mosaic virus offer a reminder of the importance of controlling volunteer wheat well before the next year's crop is planted.
