There are a few reports of spring wheat that has been seeded in portions of North Dakota.”I know of several fields that have been planted in north-central South Dakota and southwest North Dakota,” said Grant Mehring, Technical Product Manager, WestBred Wheat. This isn’t the lion’s share of the early wheat. Most of that will likely be seeded in late March and early April. “If the soil is ready, my opinion is let’s seed wheat because early seeding gives us a higher yield potential. We’re looking at a potential drier year overall and we need anything we can get.”
