Diaz, AR (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: I never paid any attention until this year on Winter Wheat and kept thinking all winter that wasn't going to make anything. It was planted in the Fall, after harvest of all the other crops. I have noticed since Spring and warmer weather it is really growing. Now I know, lol. Found this on Wikipedia.... Winter wheat (Triticum aestivum) is a crop plant that is cultivated from September to December in the Northern Hemisphere. Winter wheat sprouts before freezing occurs, then becomes dormant until the soil warms in the spring. Winter wheat needs a few weeks of cold before being able to flower, however persistent snow cover might be disadvantageous. It is ready to be harvested by early July. Due to the timing of the plant's growth and maturation, winter wheat is valued as a cold crop that can be planted right after the harvest in the fall. Hard winter wheats have a higher gluten protein content than other wheats. They are used to make flour for yeast breads, or are blended with soft spring wheats to make the all-purpose flour used in a wide variety of baked products. Soft wheat is used for specialty or cake flour. Durum, the hardest wheat, is primarily used for making pasta. Almost all durum wheat grown in North America is spring-planted.
