Andrew Adams pictures the potential maximum yield of a field of wheat as a barrel. Any variable—fertility, fungicide, population, genetics, weather—can represent a “leak” in the barrel if something goes wrong.
Adams, a technical service representative at BASF, said not understanding the stages of development of wheat can lead to improper timing of applications of pesticides, fertilizers and other inputs. That can lead to leaks in the barrel of wheat yield.
Adams gave his presentation, “The Importance of Proper Wheat Staging: Does it Really Matter?” at Wheat U, sponsored by Agweek, High Plains Journal and BASF, in Bismarck, North Dakota, on Jan. 17. The event offered specialized education in topics related to growing wheat.
