Getting started with small grain production

Jim Isleib, MSU Extension

Monday, January 26, 2015, 7-9pm (‘eastern time’)

This session will introduce you to the reasons to consider including small grains in your crop production system, equipment needed, basics of production, storage, marketing and utilization. These crops have many uses, including feed grains, rotation crops, nurse crops (for new hayfield seedings), cover crops, livestock forage, and cash crops. Major species in Michigan include winter wheat, oats, barley, and winter rye. Others that will be touched upon include spring wheat, triticale, hull-less oats and dry field peas.
