Thinking out loud

Bare with me ......... we’ve some extremely bad header losses in spring wheat due to half the plants brackled over. Vario is fully out, reel up, slow forward speed, header on the deck etc. We can’t do anything about it.

If we very lightly disced the stubble with the view of getting a ‘wheat‘ chit asap from the heads and then followed it up with drilling some winter wheat seed would the spring wheat germinate and survive?

I’m just trying to make something good out of a bad situation if that makes sense. I think we’ve potentially got 25% of the heads on the deck which isn’t ideal. We don’t have a draper type header and need to keep cutting as there’s still plenty to do.
