Bated breath on wheat

Ontario cereals specialist Joanna Follings said winter wheat had a rough start last fall.

Some of the 925,000 acres were planted too late to germinate and emerge before winter set in.

A delayed soybean harvest set back plantings, and wet fall conditions resulted in a significant amount of winter wheat seeded from mid to late October, she said.

While many parts of the province received adequate snowfall, freeze-thaw events caused ice cover concerns in some regions.
