Throughout Vermont and the Northeast, the demand for local organically grown wheat continues to rise. Due to this demand, there has been a renewed interest by producers to add wheat into their crop rotations. Several producers have asked questions about the best agronomic practices for cultivating organic spring wheat. As a result, University of Vermont Extension has been developing best agronomic practices for wheat production in the Northeast. Seeding rates can influence weed populations as well as overall yield and quality. The purpose of this trial was to determine optimum seeding rates for organic spring wheat in Vermont.
