Grygla, Minnesota farmer and Minnesota Wheat President Gary Anderson is concerned about the impact on residual nitrogen in the fields next year if volunteer spring wheat was left in the fields. “Minnesota Wheat will do some soil testing in the spring to see what the effects on the cooperators have been,” said Anderson. “The same thing happened with other on-farm research cooperators. On my own farm, we decided to let the wheat grow. We were warned too high of a level of residual nitrogen would harm next year’s soybean crop.”
