Wheat School: Frost Seeding Spring Wheat



Want to know how to increase your spring wheat yield by 40%?  Looking for a way to spread out the seeding of your spring crops?  If you are in an area of Canada that is applicable to frost seeding the rewards can be high but it is definitely not a simple process.

I talked to Peter Johnson from the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA), about some of the benefits of frost seeding and the key considerations before you get stared.  We talk about the proper frost seeding conditions, timing, the ideal equipment, seeding rates and the need for seed treatment.

Have you tried frost seeding on your farm?  Did  you have success?  What are some things that you would suggest to other growers to ensure they have success with frost seeding?
