A Pennsylvania farmer has asked me about the use of spring-seeded WINTER
wheat as a cover crop for corn (and for soybeans as a secondary interest).
He'd like to speak with a farmer or educator who has tried this or seen how
it works. Any suggestions?
He is organic, so also needs information on killing/suppressing the wheat
The idea is that spring-planted winter wheat will not vernalize, therefore
will not head. Stuck in the vegetative stage, it will (allegedly) die out
either on its own, or with some *help*. When will it senesce in eastern PA,
and will it compete for moisture (primary concern) before that time?
