Winter wheat across the area really varies on how it is doing. Wheat that was planted into ground with good ground cover and adequate moisture last fall is in decent shape. Wheat that was planted into drier soils and bare ground over the winter is not looking as good. The wheat that had good fall growing conditions and ground cover has tillered out and would not need all of its nitrogen right away. Wheat that has not grown as much will need nitrogen right away to promote tillering to try and save these fields. Now some fields of wheat that are showing no signs of germination or growth will have to be evaluated and probably planted to a different crop. As always, if you have any questions talk to your agronomist.
