Wheat School: Hanging Tough Through Thaw and Freeze

Episodes:

Will your wheat survive all the thawing and freezing during this up and down Ontario winter?

It’s a question Real Agriculture agronomist Peter Johnson hears every day. “I always get calls from guys asking, ‘Did the wheat break dormancy? If it gets cold is it going to die?’ The simple answer is no – your wheat is not going to die from thawing and freezing.”

In this episode of Wheat School, Johnson takes a closer look at the science of winter survival and explains that winter wheat is pretty tough. The only things that growers really have to fear during the winter months are ice and extreme cold temperatures. If wheat spends two weeks under ice it can suffocate, and some varieties can be at risk if the temperature dips below 22 degrees C.
