Wheat 5-inch 4 Rows, 100 Bushels
Dr. Hesser: Hi, I'm Dr. Leon Hesser. Don Wilshe has been telling me all about this stuff that you've been applying to your crops down here. I didn't believe him, and he said,
"Come down and look at it!" So I decided to come down. Tell me about it.
NC Farmer This ain't normal. I mean, we're not used to seeing wheat with a 5-inch head on it. It's amazing. Here in the Piedmont of North Carolina, close to Winston-Salem, we've seen wheat before, but we had never seen it before with this much of a head on it.
Dr. Hesser: Well, I agree. I farmed until I was 30, and I've never seen wheat with a head any longer than that. This is remarkable.
NC Farmer It is; it really is. I mean, there ain't just one, there are bunches of them. There are some that are a little shorter, but most of them are a whole lot longer than normal.
Dr. Hesser: What do you think the yield will be on this?
NC Farmer Around 100 bushels an acre or better.
Dr. Hesser: Yeah?
NC Farmer Yeah. It may be better than that because I think we're going to check it and see what it is.
Dr. Hesser: Yeah. We'll find out in a few days.
NC Farmer Right. They're still a little bit on the green side yet, but it's looking real good.
Dr. Hesser: Yeah. It sure is.
NC Farmer We've had a lot of wind. It's got down some, but it was already made and everything, so I don't think that's going to hurt it that bad. It'll be a little hard to cut, but it still ain't down as bad as it should be, as much wind as we've had.
Dr. Hesser: Yeah. It looks good.
NC Farmer We pulled up one grain there a minute ago and it had 23 stalks on it. That's where it tendered out.
Dr. Hesser: 23; and long, tall heads.
NC Farmer Yeah; long, tall heads on that. So every grain made a whole bunch of grains back.
Dr. Hesser: Well, you guys are making a believer out of me.
NC Farmer I'll tell you, Soysoap's making a believer out of me. If it's green, spray it. [Laughter] We're going to use it on everything we've got this time… beans… We've used it on our wheat and oats. I am well pleased with it, and this wheat's really looking like when it gets dry enough, we're going to see something we haven't ever seen before.
