Jochum Wiersma, an assis- tant professor at the Northwest Research and Outreach Center in Crookston, discussed small grain crop prospects for southwestern Minnesota at the Feb. 12 Winter Crops and Soils Day conducted by the SouthWest Research and Outreach Center near Lamberton. Wiersma said winter wheat, spring wheat, oats and barley all still hold pos- sibilities in southwestern Minnesota counties, after being mostly phased out since the 1960s in favor of corn and soybean rotations. The biggest limiting factors, however, are the cool season qualities of small grain. "We have to remember that it's a cool season annu- al," Wiersma said. "The biggest worD' is physiology. It needs to finish off before heat strikes." Wiersma said small grain planted after May 1 in southern Minnesota probably won't have enough time to mature before daily high tempera- tures exceed their maximum tolerance. As daily highs reach well into the 80s, small grain crops have yield-reduc- ing defense mechanisms that sacrifice bushels to sustain plants. He said wheat plant- ed in southern Minnesota counties also runs the risk of many of the same plant dis- eases experienced in north- western Minnesota counties. Although a history of rota- tion with both corn and soy- beans would help with some small grain diseases, there would be more susceptibility in SW Minnesota to wind- borne plant diseases such as leaf rust and insects coming in from southern regions. Early season moisture and adequate early season crop nutrients, while being important with corn and soy- beans, are even more critical with small grain. "The initial population in the field is essential," Wiersma said. "It's important not to stress plants any more than they have to be." He said small grain plants are normally seeded at 25-30 plants per square foot or about 1.2 mil- lion in an acre. About a 15-25 percent stand loss is expect- ed. Possible crop rotations include soybeans followed by small grain followed by corn or small grain followed by corn then soybeans and then alfalfa. "The economic reali- ties (with small grains) have been more negative than positive," Wiersma said. "People shouldn't expect mir- acles. They should look at what it takes to add them to the rotation, and at the costs per bushel." Wayne Hansen, an Extension educator in Redwood County and a coor- dinator of the February Winter Crops and Soils Da; said small grains were part of the 2004 agenda because producers are interested in adding a third crop to the standard corn and soybean system. "Some producers have started to grow small grain, and more are interest- ed," Hansen said. "We want- ed to hear from someone who has plenty of experience with it." ....
