Wheat in on time

We planted a few fields of wheat over the first 10 days of May, right on time. Why wheat? Its the stepping stone to the next high value crop in rotation, either chickpeas or cotton. We need the stubble wheat produces to maintain ground cover, and help build a moisture profile for the following season. These pics below show the 24m Boss planter planting wheat in last years chickpea country. We burnt header trails, and offset the tramlines by 30 degrees, to minimize blocking the planter. We needed to do this because we turned the spreaders off while harvesting chickpeas last season to decrease the risk of fires. More to follow as the crop progresses…..
