Default When's the best time to plant winter wheat?

I live on the border of NY and PA,in Tioga county.Deer love it along with alot of other game animals.I'll have to do a soil test because wheat needs alot of nitrogen.I'm also wondering if anyone uses it in there food plots?

Mid August is a fine time for planting wheat, with mine the deer ate it right down to the ground by snow fall but it came back fine.

But if your talking 2F your reproduction rate will be much lower and of course regeneration is not a factor in talking PPA. So with a chance of germination out pacing recruitment it really is beyond a biological science to state a planting rate that will guarantee a successful harvest that does not meet MSY over the long term.

We're very quickly coming to the best time to plant winter wheat, winter oats, winter peas and any of the turnip/brassica varieties. I was out spraying roundup this week to get ready for planting.

All we have to do then is pray for a few August rains
