Field of Dreams (2011)

Field of Dreams (2011)

We are going to do the Field of Dreams again in the 2010-2011 crop year.  For those of you who may not know what the Field of Dreams is, (other than a Kevin Costner movie about a corn field), the North Central Oklahoma version is about an intensely managed 10 acre wheat field.

Follow along and I will try to give updates periodically to what we do to the field and why.  Last year we improved yield by about 32% (see complete analysis in an earlier post). 

The field is clean tilled as I write, with approx. 80 lbs. of nitrogen applied by anhydrous, soil sample taken, lime applied, (still seeking that 6.5 to 7 pH range). 

This year the wheat that will be planted on the field as well as the balance of the field will be Endurance.
