Intensive Management Strategies to Close Wheat Yield Gaps in Central Kansas

Winter wheat is the most widely sown crop in Kansas, and yields had not surpassed 50 bushels per acre until 2015-16, when average state wheat yield was 57 bushels per acre. However, recent estimates of the long-term winter wheat yield potential in central Kansas indicate that it lies around 75 bushels per acre. A particular crop’s yield gap in a given region is determined by the ...

Wheat Variety Response to Intensive vs. Standard Management Strategies to Narrow the Yield Gap in Kansas

Farmer-reported wheat grain yield in Kansas is approximately 35 bushels per acre lower than the estimated yield potential of ~75 bushels per acre. Our objective was to determine the influence of variety selection and management on grain yield to elucidate methods to decrease the wheat yield gap in Kansas. Field experiments were conducted at three locations (Ellsworth, Conway ...

Genotype by Seeding Rate Interaction in Wheat

Genotype by seeding rate interaction can play a critical role in understanding wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) yield potential. The objective of this study was to quantify wheat yield response to seeding rates by contrasting genotypes (high- vs. low-tillering). One study was planted at two locations: Ashland Bottoms (dryland and conventional tillage) and at Topeka (irrigated and ...

Optimum Seeding Rate for Different Wheat Varieties in Kansas

Seeding rate is an important management practice affecting wheat yield. Wheat varieties differ in their tillering capacity and therefore in their yield response to seeding rate. Our objectives were to evaluate the tillering and yield response of different modern wheat varieties to seeding rate. The study was conducted in Hutchinson and Manhattan, KS, during the 2015-16 growing ...

Wheat Production

Wheat production in southeast Kansas is often limited due to high rainfall during the harvest. In some years, this high rainfall can exacerbate disease pressure, especially fungal infections. This study presents results from a test of fungicide applications to control Fusarium head blight (FHB) or scab in poor quality wheat.

Value of Fungicide Application in Wheat Production in Southwest Kansas

During the past several years, applying fungicide to wheat has become a more common practice. The availability of cost-effective generic fungicides, as well as the positive yield responses often reported, seem to be the potential drivers for the adoption of such practices by producers. We conducted a wheat fungicide trial in Garden City, KS, to answer the following questions: 1) Do ...
