Last year due to extenuating circumstances we didn’t get it seeded till well into October. It got germinated but a lot didn’t even emerge before winter set in. It’s been much later to harvest than normal, but turned out to be a decent crop.
Where are you located? Probably safe to go at least 10 days later than the last date you'd seed winter wheat since rye is more hardy.
Have had good luck with late seeding, all depends on the winter and the spring for tillering. Sometimes seeding too early uses up a bunch of moisture and if you don't get much snow it can start hurting pretty bad in the spring.
Not to hijck this thread, but what crop do you guys grow rye after? And what do you follow rye with? We had considered trying a quarter out, but not looking like that's going to happen, frickin' weather.
Peas after rye are pretty good. I've had decent luck with canola but you need to control volunteers in the fall and again in the spring early on. And it works best with a planter I think for the row cleaners.
I'd seed rye after just about anything that you can get off in time.
Rye seeded mid October last year yielded 40 percent less than mid sept, and took two passes of herbicide and still had weeds in by harvest, lesson learned there, need to have rye emerged out of ground to be a viable crop, seed growers will tell you other but sell seed.. Sounds like lots going in this fall, be prepared for sub 4 dollar rye next few years
Most hybrid is sold out I hear. Not sure how seed production went this year though. But I think they are mostly sold out almost every year. Any big increase of acres will come from OP for that reason I think.
Just joined the forum. See mostly positive responses on our variable-rate zoning system for soil-applied nutrients, seed, pesticides and amendments. Happy to engage in any capacity to answer questions.
Due to a capricious landlord I am in a situation for this coming year where I have to grow canola. Not a veteran canola guy although I've helped with a lot of canola harvest. It will be going on good heavy dirt but it has standing corn on it right now.
First off I need to buy seed. Most will...
From past discussions on here it was evident that some of the pellet stoves and grain burners were more effective than others with junk grain and tailings. Does anybody have any recent news on a burner that works well with the kind of stuff we all have access to that we are wasting currently...
Can these assclowns post a link on there website to print off the check off return forum. Instead I have to waste my time emailing them asking for one to be sent out.
