In The News

It is important to begin monitoring for weeds soon after wheat recovers from winter dormancy, but before plants are jointing because some herbicides need to be applied after tillering is complete but before jointing occurs. Weed species to look out for include common cool season weeds such as Italian ryegrass, chickweed, henbit, and marestail; as well as Star-of-Bethlehem and Wild Garlic which both experience significant emergence during February and March.

     Wheat Tech, Inc. is a group of independent crop consultants with over 170 years of experience. The goal of our consultants is to provide growers with an agronomically sound consulting program in South Central Kentucky, Tennessee, and the boot heel of Missouri. We specialize in intensively managed wheat, corn and soybean production utilizing our experience and backed up by our research plots. 

     Independent means that we do not work for any crop protectant, fertilizer or seed companies. We do not sell any inputs and our recommendations are based on experience, research data and an unbiased view of the available products.

     Our consultants work directly with the grower to develop management strategies that will maximize the economic return of their crop. The service is cradle to grave in that every decision from preplant fertility to late season fungicide use must be scrutinized to determine agronomic soundness.
