‘Phenomenal crop’ of wheat reported PDF Print E-mail

Feature Writer

Paulding County Ohio State University educator Sarah Noggle said earlier this week that this year’s county wheat crop was not only one of the best in history, but “absolutely phenomenal,” especially with those farmers who had over-winter stand issues.

“People were a little surprised when they saw the yields coming in,” observed Noggle. “I think most of them would have been happy for yields of 70 to 75 bushels-per acre. This was a good blessing they weren’t planning on.”

Noggle attributed this year’s successful crop to seeding rates, nitrogen use and getting nitrogen at an optimum time and using the varieties.
