Winter wheat or spring wheat?

Discussion in 'Cropping' started by dirty harry, Jan 8, 2019.

  1. thinking of drilling spring wheat next week, but can’t help wandering if I’d be better going with winter wheat at the mo?
    Spring variety is chilham, or could swap out for either gravity or zyatt ?
    Which will be better yield potential?
    Cheers dh

    Think I would go for Zyatt. Earlier and possibly more yield than SW.
     
  3. Cheers Andrew confirms my thoughts aswell, happy new year btw!
    Cheers dh

    Zyatt can be sown until mid Feb. I would crack on, just keep the seedrate high (y)

  6. What sort of seedrate do you think?
    500 seeds or higher?
