Growing wheat, barley, or oats profitably is like piecing together a challenging puzzle. Variety selection, proper fertilization, good weed control, and the ability to identify and eliminate yield robbing diseases and pests are all pieces of this puzzle. Each piece requires attention to solve the whole puzzle profitably.
The Small Grains Field Guide is intended as a quick reference and field guide for the production of wheat, barley, and oats. The information presented is organized around disciplines, rather than around crop species, to eliminate redundancy, as there are many similarities between wheat, barley, and oats. If and when differences are pertinent, specific data is presented for the crop in question. The book contains 10 sections: Agronomic Management, Crop Growth & Development, Fertility Management, Pesticide Management, Weed Management, Disease and Pest Management, Harvest and Storage Management, Marketing, Photographs, and Useful Internet Resources.
