Bill Crabtree wheat 2018

Interestingly i harvested this paddock in the photo (taken October 2018 – a week after returning from Iowa) just this week. It yielded 0.5 t/ha or 7.5 bush/acre. We only had 100 mm (4”) of rain in this cropping year and nothing in the soil. So it is a miracle that we got anything. I will attach a photo of the crop i just harvested now.But, if i had current access to HB4 this wheat would likely have yield double this.
