We hope to start a small plot of Red Winter Wheat. Any Tips? In our area, (Arkansas) they plant in mid-Sept to mid-Oct, for a June harvest.

No tips from the forum but I'm checking with my local Farm Center. Will keep track of as much info and results as i can and post regularly for those who may want to follow up with their own!

Sage.. I just posted some on it at the other thread. I would suggest you stick to the local planting times as it reduces the chance for Hessian fly. Also to increase the yield, you should 'graze it back' to encourage tillering once it is established good, but before any chance of snow/hard freeze.

I wish you luck in your endeavor. I wish I had a penny for every acre of wheat I've planted and harvested in my life.. FB

I've grown wheat, rye, and oats, and always planted them in the spring for a fall harvest. This year I'm going to try planting this fall for a spring/early summer crop. I don't have any experience doing it this way, but here goes...
