Interaction Of Seeding And Nitrogen Rate On Grain Sorghum Yield In Southwest Kansas, A. J. Foster, A. Schlegel, J. D. Holman, I. A. Ciampitti, C. Thompson, D. Ruiz Diaz Jun 2017

Interaction Of Seeding And Nitrogen Rate On Grain Sorghum Yield In Southwest Kansas, A. J. Foster, A. Schlegel, J. D. Holman, I. A. Ciampitti, C. Thompson, D. Ruiz Diaz

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

This study compared drilled planted sorghum at four seeding rates to planted sorghum at three different nitrogen (N) fertility levels at two locations in southwest Kansas (Garden City and Tribune). At the Garden City location, no difference was observed in yield among the drilled seeded sorghum populations greater than 27,000 seeds/a compared to the standard planted sorghum (sorghum planted at 27,000 seeds/a with a planter at 30 in.-row spacing). At Tribune, there was no difference in yield between the drilled sorghum and the standard planted sorghum (sorghum planted at 40,000 seeds/a with a ...


Seeding Rate For Dryland Wheat, A. Schlegel, J. D. Holman, L. Haag Jan 2017

Seeding Rate For Dryland Wheat, A. Schlegel, J. D. Holman, L. Haag

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

Four winter wheat varieties (PlainsGold Byrd, Limagrain T158, Syngenta TAM 111, and WestBred Winterhawk) were planted at five seeding rates (30, 45, 60, 75, and 90 lb/a) in the fall of 2014 and 2015 at Colby, Garden City, and Tribune, KS. The objective of the study was to identify appropriate seeding rates for dryland winter wheat in western Kansas. Averaged across varieties, a seeding rate of 60 lb/a seemed to be adequate at all locations in 2015. However, with higher yields in 2016, a higher seeding rate (75 lb/a) was beneficial. The wheat variety T158 was the ...

Genotype By Seeding Rate Interaction In Wheat, A. J. Azevedo, S. Varela, R. Lollato, I. A. Ciampitti Jan 2017

Genotype By Seeding Rate Interaction In Wheat, A. J. Azevedo, S. Varela, R. Lollato, I. A. Ciampitti

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

Genotype by seeding rate interaction can play a critical role in understanding wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) yield potential. The objective of this study was to quantify wheat yield response to seeding rates by contrasting genotypes (high- vs. low-tillering). One study was planted at two locations: Ashland Bottoms (dryland and conventional tillage) and at Topeka (irrigated and no-tillage) field research stations (Kansas). The two winter wheat varieties were sown at four different seeding rates (40, 80, 120, and 160 lb/a). Measurements consisted of stand counts, canopy coverage (estimated via imagery collection), determination of early-season gaps in the final stand (missing ...


Optimum Seeding Rate For Different Wheat Varieties In Kansas, R. Lollato, G. Cramer, A. K. Fritz, G. Zhang Jan 2017

Optimum Seeding Rate For Different Wheat Varieties In Kansas, R. Lollato, G. Cramer, A. K. Fritz, G. Zhang

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

Seeding rate is an important management practice affecting wheat yield. Wheat varieties differ in their tillering capacity and therefore in their yield response to seeding rate. Our objectives were to evaluate the tillering and yield response of different modern wheat varieties to seeding rate. The study was conducted in Hutchinson and Manhattan, KS, during the 2015-16 growing season. Seven wheat varieties (Everest, KanMark, 1863, Joe, Tatanka, Larry, and Zenda) were sown at five different seeding rates (0.6, 0.95, 1.3, 1.65, and 2 million seeds per acre). Tiller number and grain yield were measured in the spring ...
