Has anybody tried to grow hard winter wheat in zone 4/5? I called my county extension, who told me that this is done in my zone, but not very often. I canât find a single human being to talk too who has tried this in my neck of the woods. Iâm interested in a small plot. Iâve got a 30x200 sqft field that Iâm putting into sweet corn in the spring. The sweetcorn will harvest in early August, leaving me time for a fall crop. I figure Iâll manure with compost from the chicken coop, and maybe add some additional nitrogen. I hate to plant 2 grasses back to back. The wheat will be both for me, and for the critters. What kind of yield can I get off of a small 6,000 sqft area â about 13% of an acre? Any tips or advice?
