There is a great opportunity following winter wheat to grow cover crops, which can also be used as additional forage. As producers consider the forage opportunity, it becomes obvious that virtually no data exists on the best crop to fill this void. Even if the cover crop species is chosen, management for optimum forage yield is unknown. Optimum seeding and nitrogen rates are major areas where data is minimal or even non-existent.
This trial will attempt to determine agronomic recommendations for cereal crops grown as forage following a winter wheat crop.
