“Ultra Early” and Normal Seeding of Spring wheat
MARA in collaborations with other ARA’s and support from Alberta Wheat Commission, this trial was developed.
The trial is focusing on two wheat varieties:
AAC Connery and AAC Brandon.
AAC Connery is considered an early maturing variety while AAC Brandon, although earlier maturing than some varieties, is later maturing than AAC Connery. The goal is to assess the difference
(stand, protein, yield and grade) between these two varieties at two planting dates:
1. Ultra-Early: when the ground is first able to carry equipment and soil temperatures are between 2—6 degrees Celsius.
2. Normal: seeded at least 10-14 days later or when ‘normal’ seeding window occurs for the area.
