2021 Orthman Research Yield Book


of moisture away from the crop setting up this hybrid to do poorly. In an effort to better plan and express the

potential economics of drilling wheat behind this crop we plan on replicating this trial with proper fertilization. Furthermore, we have drilled wheat in two areas at the Orthman research farm this fall. One area will be used to demonstrate the ability to drill beans following wheat harvest and take that to yield so we can calculate an ROI on double crop beans in east central Nebraska. The second area, no-till wheat, was drilled into the cornstalks where the P9211Q was harvested. To our amazement the stand as of November 1, 2021 looks better than expected considering the wheat was no-till drilled into cornstalks, on ridged ground and into dry soils. We look forward to learning more as we continue this trial.
