Love this wheat
on 06/28/16 by Marcia Litsinger in Stagecoach Nevada

I tried this wheat as a cover crop and am so happy to see it did well enough to increase my seed from a packet to 2 and 3/4 lbs. in two seasons. No extra water all winter then finished up ant the same time as garlic. Great yield in the high desert of Nevada.
