Wheat Update- July 2023

Jul 20, 2023

Looking ahead to the 2024 wheat crop, seed variety selection is one of the most important decisions a grower will make.  Seed production this year was a challenge due to a drier-than-normal Winter and Spring.  MKC is fortunate to have a mix of dryland and irrigated seed production to ensure supply even when we have weather challenges like this year.
For 2024 MKC has a good supply of the following varieties – WB4401, WB4699, and Croplan 70-17. 

WB4401 offers a great fit for the continuous wheat, rotated after soybean, and later planted acres. 
  • Grain quality is above average
  • Overall yield is very good
  • Provides aggressive fall growth for later planting
WB4699 brings a great option for early planted acres and acres following corn. 
  • Wheat Streak Mosaic tolerance is above average
  • It is later to break dormancy, so the threat of spring freeze damage is lessened
  • Brings great top end yield potential  
CP70-17AX offers:
  • Chemical resistance to Aggressor herbicide which offers control of cereal rye, cheat grass species, and volunteer wheats that are not CoAXium tolerant.
  • Good option for suppressing hard to control grass weeds in wheat
  • Does well on lower pH soils
