still trying to plant wheat due to unusually wet conditions that have prevailed during the past several Because of such late pro ducers need to be aware of certain Consequences of late planting are potentially reduced yield due to in adequate possible winter kill and reduced vegetative development tillering that will result in Increased pressure from diseases such as leaf rust and greater risk from heat and drought stress In the Inadequate vernalization will be less of a problem in northern areas of the state than in southern regions with milder Every winter wheat variety has some vernaliza tion Vernalization simply refers to a number of chilling hours below a threshold temperature of about 40 degrees that is re quired by a particular variety to realize normal head development and grain Each variety has dif ferent vernalization requirements below which yield will suffer due to an unadequate period of cold weather during vegetative Wheats well adapted to South Texas will not normally

gradually diminish in most years as the planting date goes past the first week of In abnormally cold years such as late little effect of winter yields was observed from planting as late as 20 it weather conditions are favorable and disease pressure is light in the Although winter wheat is well adapted to cold temperatures and can stand extremely hard freezes without significant wheat does not grow at temperatures below 40 degrees Wheat planted in December will have little opporunity to make any significant growth before weather wamrs in the The greatest injury observed due to the cold winter of 198384 was in fields where wheat did not emerge until early December due to planting in dry Stands that had not developed secondary root systems or produced tillers suffered somewhat erratic stand More mature wheat lost leaf but stands were not significantly Part of the loss of young wheat was due to shallow root systems in realtively dry surface soil which gets much col der than more moisture Another potential for yield loss in late planted wheat is due to lack of vegetative development in the particularly the opporunity to pro duce Tillers are secondary shoots that develop from the main Tillers produce at least half of the wheat heads in most Yield is equal to head numbers times number of seed per head times average seed The reduced opporunity to tiller in the fall could reduce the potential number of wheat Which is otie Important com ponent of wheat Favorable spr ing Weather or a mild winter would result in little difference in tiller numbers between early and late planted Higher seeding rates in later planted wheat help reduce the loss that might occur due to fewer tiller Late planted wheat also will mature In Central and South early maturing wheats pro duce the best wheat yields because disease pressure as well as heat and drought stress are greatest In the later part of the growing Pro ducers plating late should plant a leaf rust restant variety and

wheat is planted in the the less will be the difference in yield poten tial between spring and winter Two types of spring wheats are planted in These are length sensitive wheats such as Nadadores 63 and daylength insen sitive wheats such as Siete Anza and Penjamo Day length sensitive long day spring wheats head out when days lengthen in the spring and should be planted during November or early Daylength in sensitive wheat head out in response to warm temperatures and may head out during the winter if planted too Such wheats should be planted from 20 to 15 in South Texas and as much as three
