Plant forage after wheat
An early wheat harvest means there could be extra growing time for double-cropped forage. When moisture is available there are several forage options to consider.
Farmers can chose to plant forage sorghum for short-season silage, or sunflowers might be a viable choice.
Turnips and oats could be considered for fall pasture if planted into wheat stubble in late July or early August.
