Looks fine, just not sure you are gaining anything in terms of production. That will be interesting to see in the fall.
Big assumption that you did do both crops solid seeded for checks?
Or maybe i'm completely wrong, are you doing this for another reason then just hopefully gaining more pounds of production/acre?
Looking for a slightly higher production per acre and less inputs
So far vs solid seeded if it rains any time soon I may actually be money ahead with the wheat in the beans
The solid seeded wheat seems to be suffering and is being pushed by 2 things, number one being heat, we have had several days above 95F with lots of wind to boot, currently this field only has had 2.1" of rainfall recorded since the day I started planting here on April 9th. The second thing is the solid seeded wheat received more nitrogen up front since NH3 is on the air seeder and that also seems to be pushing it along with the heat as it is already heading, some even flowering and has that pale color to it already
Here is what is really interesting, the wheat/beans have basically no disease stress as the headlands do and weed pressure is very very minimal in the wheat/beans vs solid seeded
Now I was hoping for less disease pressure but would have originally guessed that it would be a reversal, right now I am just giving it a touch up with harmony and puma and I will be more than good until pre harvest burndown, this is the first wild oats application, none prior
I did not solid seed beans in the same field but have some near by on sunflower ground so we can use that as a close enough basis
For a more normal year I wanted the wheat to help the beans keep moisture down early on but it's an interesting thing to watch as it seems to me both plants are functioning in very different ways than would be if seperate and I believe for the better, like I say if it would rain there is still hope for this crop, much too late for most wheat in the area, looking like a 30 bu crop in this area
