Triticum aestivum Seed Germination
Indoors: Direct sow recommended
Outdoors: Sow mid September to early December or in fall to allow for 6-8 weeks of growth before the Winter freeze. If planted too late this wheat will not over winter well. Broadcast seeds over prepared bed with light soil cover for S0-60 days cold winter temperatures 32-41F to sprout in Spring for tilling or hard kernels by July. To broadcast, divide seeds in two, broadcast one part in one direction, the remainder in opposite direction. Lightly rake in to depth of 2-2.5″ & firm & keep moist until germination.
Cover crop sow in dry ground, 2″ deep in rows 6-14″ apart or just broadcast, lightly rake in & gently water. Seeds will become dormant & germinate in Spring
