On Winter wheat I disc in the fertilizer per the soil test before I plant. When it freezes sometime in February I put on a 100lbs of urea,then in early spring I have the coop put on fungicide and 28. I have real good luck doing the split application,wheat is not worth much around here but I can sell straw and make my money.

Do you need the fungicide if there has never been wheat on the land? How much total N do you generally use?

I always use fungicide on wheat and corn, and shoot for 80# of actual N.

Soil test. I use 18-46-60 starter on my wheat ground. You don't get it all out in that first crop so you want to be careful about doing fertilizing on rented ground if you aren't renting long term. It really just depends on your soil.

[quote="CVPost-Jon f mn"](quoted from post at 00:54:41 01/14/1Cool Don't know what seed to use yet. There is a market for wheat at a local miller.
=====================

One thing you need to know, but was not mentioned by anyone: Best reason for a soil test is so you know the "PH" of your soil...the acidity level, which is corrected by any needed lime. Fert is not as effective if the PH is not at proper level. Only way to find that out is TAKE A SOIL TEST.
A soil test is like getting a road map for a new destination, Adding any lime is like tuning the motor. The fert is like adding clean oil and gas. Then maybe the motor will run properly as long as you do the applications and seeding at the proper times..

When frost is out and field is dry, grab a plastic pail (not a galvanized one) and a spade. Walk randomly over the field, taking small 4-6 inch deep slices (don't take soil from near a gravel road or some small spot where livestock used to stand for days), stir the soil good, put a sample in the bag you will have gotten from the fert dealer or county ag agent, or even that local miller. When you get the results back, talk to someone who knows more than you do on how to diagnose the results (anyone who does NOT know more than you is of no help to you, adding amateurs to the mix does not make it better).

PS Soil near a gravel road...all that dust from traffic will often raise the PH to high levels along that road, affecting the PH reading of the field average..
