I didn't know it was that much less per bushel, geesh.

I would skip the wheat and just plant pancake mix.

Some guys here still raise durum and also in Montana. It can bring a better price than hard wheat if it’s good quality. Spaghetti and pastas are made from it but a percentage of wheat is allowed in the mix. The Italians buy our durum and then ship back spaghetti and then some dopes rave how good it is. Edk

I’m North of the 49th and where we are in north eastern Alberta we are pretty much at the northern tip of farmable land. An hour north of me it’s muskeg and Bush, an hour south of me gets a 2week on average jump start on us.
We grow Wheat , Barley, Oats, Field Peas, and Canola.
Using a 45’ Morris Airdrill &300 bu. Aircart. Not sure if it’s a Weather/climate thing but we seed way heavier then what I’ve read on here so far. Wheat goes in at 125-175 lbs/acre, and dry fert blend is from 150 to 250/acre.
I grew hard red spring wheat and just finished seeding last Friday, we hope to straight cut it in September.
Still seeding canola .

Abe—didn’t they used to call canola rapeseed?
Do you get the 40 BPA Jim mentioned—on wheat?

Does anyone remember wheat varieties grown in northwestern Minnesota in the 1970s? We raised Protor (I think) and Kitt (a ten acre test that made 54 bushels an acre). I don’t think the whole farm averaged over 40. Was there a variety called Era?

Rapeseed is still what the old timers refer to canola as.
As for wheat yield 40 bu / acre your losing money.
We try to hit between 50-60 an acre on our farm . With some guys locally getting above that although their input costs still have them average the same return/ acre.

Most of the farmers in my area have a proven yield of about 45 bushels per acre. That means to make a profit you have to bet against averages and beat your proven yield. Roll the dice baby! 45 here is about break even point. That is for just cash I put costs and does not count machinery costs. Ed k

Amazing yields.


You must get good moisture.

My relatives farm in North Central ND and say you'll find every leak in your combine real quick when harvesting canola.

Canola runs about like water does. Duct tape to the rescue on combines and trucks and grain bins. I was raising about 1500 acres a year before I retired. Ed k

Big dairy farmers around here have been growing corn in the same spot every year for decades. They must be doing something right pa's driving a brand new one ton diesel and ma's got a Mercedes and a Lexus.

When it is planted here we just use a drill.

By the way all of the cotton is planted under irrigation,the dryland will be put in later.

One spot on the farm tends to be hard to grow a good crop of cotton so it will be put in last as well.
It had rye planted for haying round bales.
