Forage Winter Wheat

$0.45 lb

Forage Winter Wheat is a winter annual grain commonly planted for forage production. It is an awnless variety of winter wheat bred for superior forage quality and yield in comparison to other winter annual small grains. It is a late-maturing variety of winter wheat, which results in an extended period of vegetative growth in the spring that is correlated with higher forage quality. Forage Winter Wheat has good winter hardiness and can be used in northern climates that experience harsh winter temperatures. It is also relatively drought tolerant and can be used in dryland applications or on lighter soils. It does best in well-drained to moderately drained soils as extended periods of standing water can result in winterkill.
