I am getting ready to cut my wheat for hay , it has a few heads starting , so it is time as soon as this weather breaks. It looks like the wheat is only 10-12 inches tall, and I need to get all the leaves when it is cut,, so now is the time to cut. I planted Duster and fertilized w/ 30lbs er acre of N when planted, and another 30lbs in January befoer the spring rains. I tested and had plenty of P & K , so why the short wheat? Neoghbor had same seed and planted 1 week earlier and used less Fertilizer, but his wheat is over 16inches tall.

Any ideas.

I guess you should maybe plant a little earlier ? The dryland wheat on the west end of the state looks bad, it is burning up as we speak. I dont know anything about Duster , if you want forage like wheat I would suggest planting Triticalie.............makes nice hay or green chop.................
