Preface

Results of the 1999-2000 performance tests of small grains grown for grain and forage are printed in this research report. Grain-evaluation studies were conducted at five locations, including Tifton, Plains, and Midville in the Coastal Plain region, Griffin in the Piedmont region, and Calhoun in the Limestone Valley region. Small grain forage evaluation tests were conducted at three locations in Georgia, which included Tifton and Plains in the Coastal Plain, Griffin in the Piedmont, and at Quincy, Florida. For identification of the test locations, consult the map below.

Grain yields are reported as bushels per acre at 13.5 percent moisture for wheat, 13 percent for triticale and rye, 12.5 percent moisture for oats, and 12 percent moisture for barley. Additional agronomic data such as plant height, lodging, disease incidence, etc., are listed along with the corresponding yield data. Information concerning culture and fertilizer practices used is included in footnotes. Since the average yield from several years indicates a variety's potential better than a single year's data, multiple-year yield summaries are included.

In order to have a broad base of information, a number of varieties, including experimental lines, are included in the tests, but this does not imply that all are recommended for Georgia. Varieties best suited to a specific area or for a particular purpose and agreed upon by College of Agriculture scientists are presented in the 001E Small Grain Cultural Practices 4FD2 section and also in the 2000 Fall Planting Schedule for Georgia (available at your county extension office). For additional information, contact your local county extension agent or the nearest experiment station.

The Least Significant Difference (LSD) at the ten percent level has been included in the tables to aid in comparing varieties and tests. If the yields of any two varieties differ by the LSD value or more, they may be considered different. Bolding is used in the performance tables to indicate entries with yields statistically equal to the highest yielding entry in the test. The standard error (Std. Err.) of an entry mean is included at the bottom of each table to provide a general indicator of the level of precision of each variety experiment. The lower the value for the standard error of the entry mean, the more precise the experiment.

The Season

The Fall of 1999 was the second year in a row that most Georgia small grain producers faced the challenge of planting a small grain crop into dry soils. They met the challenge as planting continued at a normal pace throughout the season. Wheat acreage planted was estimated at 300,000 acres, an increase of 20 percent over the previous year. Oat acreage increased 20 percent, while rye acreage declined 8 percent.

Severe drought growing conditions that the state of Georgia has been experiencing for the past two years continued through the completion of the 2000 small grain crop year. Rainfall amounts recorded monthly at the five test locations during the 1999-2000 growing season are presented in the following table. Most areas of the state continue to receive record low rainfall. Locations at Calhoun, Plains, and Tifton received only about 55 percent of normal rainfall, averaging around 15 inches less than long-term eight-month average.

Overall, the 1999-2000 small grain growing season in Georgia was characterized by a mild and dry winter followed by a very dry and hot spring. Lack of adequate vernalization was a problem especially for the late maturing varieties. There were some trouble spots of buildup but low levels of disease and insects helped farmers produce excellent yields and test weights. Farmers not rotating ground planted to small grains is an increasing production problem.

Small grain harvest progressed rapidly during a very hot and dry May and June. Growers harvested 240,000 acres of wheat for grain. This was a 7 percent increase above last year of harvested wheat and a near record estimated 52 bushels per acre produced 29 percent more than 1999. Oat yields increased 2 bushels per acre, while rye yields were unchanged at 21 bushels per acre.

Small Grain Cultural Practices

E. Dewey Lee, Extension Agronomist, Tifton, Georgia

Fertilization

Soil samples should be taken from all fields to be planted in small grains, whether for grain or grazing. Soil testing prior to planting aids in determining the amount and type of fertilizer needed to produce a small grain crop. This practice may prevent excessive expenditures where the soil fertility level is very high, and it ensures that the nutritional needs of the crop are met.

Lime should be applied to maintain the soil pH at a target pH of 6.0. If the small grains are to be grazed or if magnesium (Mg) levels are low, dolomitic lime (high Mg) should be used. Adequate amounts of lime should be applied to the previous crop to assure that the soil pH is in the desired range prior to planting small grains. However, if soils tests indicate the need for lime, it should be applied as soon as possible in order to allow adequate time for the soil pH change to occur (usually two to three months or more, depending on fineness of grind).

The table below show the recommended rates of fertilizer N-P205-K20 to apply to small grain, based on soil test levels:

Soil Test Rating for Potassium (K20)
  Low Medium High Very High
Low *-80-80 *-80-40 *-80-0 *-80-0
Medium *-40-80 *-40-40 *-40-0 *-40-0
High *-0-80 *-0-40 *-0-0 *-0-0
Very High *-0-80 *-0-40 *-0-0 *-0-0
*For small grain following a legume, apply 60-80 lb N/acre; for small grain following cotton, corn, etc., apply 80-100 lb N/acre; for small grain following grain sorghum, apply 100-120 lb N/acre. Apply 20-40 lb of recommended N/acre in the fall and the remainder in February. For grazing, increase the total N fertilizer rate by 60 lb N/acre and apply in two applications — one-half in the fall and the remainder in midwinter.

Planting

Small grain seed should be planted in a well-prepared, firm, moist seedbed. Moldboard plowing or chisel plowing is recommended in preference to disc harrowing. The seed should be planted 1 to 1.5 inches deep. The proper planting date for small grain is important for both grain and forage production. Some factors to consider in determining the date for planting small grains include variety, geographic location, weather patterns, soil moisture, and intended use of the crop. If irrigation is available, the planting date can be more flexible. The following table shows recommended planting dates in Georgia:

Pest Control

Check with your county extension agent for the latest information on weed, disease, and insect control in small grains.

Varieties

Select high-yielding, insect- and disease-resistant varieties for best results. In selecting varieties, give careful consideration to the statistics (LSD) reported in the tables. An explanation of their proper use is given in the preface to this report. The variety listed at the top of the list may be only one of the best.

For late planting, the early-maturing varieties usually perform the best. Varieties recommended for the 2000 planting season are presented in the table below.

To ensure good germination, the absence of noxious weeds, and varietal purity plant certified, treated seed. General seeding rate recommendations based on bushels per acre are provided in Table 1. Seed size varies greatly from year to year and among varieties and seed lots. Therefore, more accurate plant populations may be achieved by using seeding rates based on seeds per area rather than on bushels per acre. For example, research on wheat has shown that seeding rates near 35 seeds per square foot are best for top yields. Accurate target populations are best achieved by adjusting grain drill settings based on number of seed per foot of row. Grain drill calibrations can be accomplished quickly and accurately by counting seed collected from one or more rows during travel over a specified distance and calculating the drill output as seeds per foot of row. Table 2 is provided as a guide to establish target populations of the small grain crops for popular row spacings. The figures in Table 2 are broadly based on the average number of seeds per pound for the various crops but even more accurate calibrations can be accomplished if the actual number of seeds per pound is known for the seed lot being planted. At least one seed supplier in the Southeast now prints seed size information on the bag. If seed size is known, Table 3 may more accurately predict seed requirements.

Small Grains Updates

Variety Releases

Dr. J. W. Johnson, Department of Crop and Soil Sciences
Georgia Station, Griffin, GA 30223-1797


The Small Grains Breeding Program released a wheat cultivar which will be marketed as AGS 2000 (PVP applied for). AGS 2000 is medium maturing, awned, white chaffed, medium tall soft red winter wheat. It is resistant to currently predominant races of powdery mildew, moderately resistant to leaf rust, and resistant to the predominant biotypes of Hessian Fly in the Southeast. It has a heavy wax on the plants at heading which gives it a distinctive grayish blue-green plant color. This new cultivar available for the first time for the Fall 2000 planting season was tested experimentally as 89482E7. It has the following pedigree: Pioneer 2555 /PF84301 //Florida 302. AGS 2000 is broadly adapted and is high yielding with a high test weight. It was developed by the University of Georgia/University of Florida small grains breeding program. AGS 2000 will be marketed by AGSouth Genetics, a new marketing company created to market selected new varieties developed by both Universities.

The team has also released a new oat cultivar, Horizon 314 (PVP applied for). Horizon 314 (tested as FL92OHR31,314 and FLX499-1-B3-G6) is a new full season winter oat cultivar that has considerable potential for both grain and forage production in the Southeast. It was developed by the University of Florida and the University of Georgia. In comparison to Chapman it is higher yielding, has a heavier test weight, and is 3-6 days later in heading and 4 inches taller in height. It has good winter hardiness, good crown rust resistance, tillers well, and has a dark green plant color. At heading the flag leaves are more upright than most other varieties. Seed are white similar to Chapman and turn greyish if weathered. Horizon 314 has been released exclusively to Plantation Seeds, Newton, Georgia for marketing and promotion and is available for the first time in the Fall of 2000.

Several wheat cultivars have been released by private companies for production in Georgia. These include: FFR 518, Pioneer 26R61, and USG 3209.

Metribuzin Sensitivity*

D. C. Bridges, J. L. Day, J. W. Johnson, and P. L. Raymer
Department of Crop and Soil Sciences, Georgia Station, Griffin, GA 30223-1797

*NOTE: A metribuzin sensitivity field trial was conducted during this small grain growing season (1999-2000). Extremely dry soil at planting caused uneven emergence of wheat and variation within varieties from application of metribuzin. Therefore, the data will not be included in this report. The experiment will be repeated this fall for the 2000-01 growing season. The following information and data are from the 1998-99 field trial.

In recent years Georgia wheat farmers have increasingly experienced difficulties controlling Italian (annual) ryegrass in wheat with Hoelon (diclofop). An option is to use Sencor (metribuzin) as a postemergence treatment for control of annual ryegrass, wild radish, and other broadleaf species. Approximately 10 years ago metribuzin use among Georgia wheat growers was fairly common, but use had declined over the intervening years. However, the current difficulties in controlling ryegrass with Hoelon have spurred interest in once again using Sencor.

Some wheat cultivars are sensitive to Sencor (metribuzin). If Sencor is applied to sensitive cultivars severe injury and/or stand loss may occur. The Sencor label contains a list of known tolerant and sensitive wheat and barley cultivars. However, the label does not contain all varieties that are currently grown in Georgia. Until about 10 years ago, field experiments were routinely conducted to determine cultivar sensitivity to metribuzin. Due to the increased interest in using metribuzin for winter wheat weed control we resumed cultivar evaluations using metribuzin during the 1997-98 wheat season and conducted trials again during the 1998-99 season.

The following table summarizes data collected in a field trial at Griffin, Georgia, during the 1998/99 growing season. Wheat was seeded 13 November 1998 at a seeding rate of 2 bu/acre. Paired treated and untreated plots were included in each of four replicates. Metribuzin (Sencor) was applied postemergence at a rate of 0.375 lb ai/acre to wheat in the 2-3 leaf stage on 4 December 1998. Wheat injury was visually estimated on 14 January 1999 and yields were determined in June 1999.

3 NK Coker 9704 scored a rating of "Tolerant" in UGA tests. However, it is rated as "Sensitive" on the Sencor label, which indicates that in at least one trial severe injury and/or stand loss was observed with the cultivar. Therefore, NK Coker 9704 should be regarded as "Sensitive". Pioneer 2643 was initially rated as "Moderately Tolerant" based on early-season visual injury, but based on yields it should be regarded as "Sensitive".

Diseases

Barry M. Cunfer, Department of Plant Pathology
Griffin Campus, Griffin, GA 30223


The dry spring was not conducive for development of foliar diseases. The low level of disease contributed to high yields and grain test weights across the state. However, some losses were encountered on cultivars susceptible to leaf rust. Stagonospora leaf and glume blotch were very low. Symptoms were mostly confined to the lower leaves and very little glume blotch occurred. The most serious disease occurrence was on one farm where over 200 acres were lost because of common bunt or stinking smut. This disease produces a foul odor like dead fish. Spores of the fungus carried on seed invade the seedling when the seed germinates. No damage is seen until heads emerge when the seeds are entirely replaced by smut spores. The smut spores are released during threshing and adhere to the healthy seed. Because so many spores are produced, an infection level near 1 percent one season can result in 50 percent or greater loss the next season. Therefore, the disease may go unnoticed the year before serious loss occurs. Loose smut on oats has a similar life cycle. Loose smut of wheat and barley has a somewhat different life cycle but it is also transmitted only by seed. Smut diseases are very easily controlled by systemic seed treatments. Tebuconazole (Raxil) and difenoconazole (Dividend) are most effective but carboxin (Vitavax) will also give effective control in most cases. Seed protectant fungicides such as captan and thiram will not control smut diseases. Certified seed is inspected for smut diseases and only a very low level is tolerated. Therefore, planting Certified seed is an effective way to control smuts.

Barley yellow dwarf was variable and caused mostly light damage. Take-all root rot caused significant losses in fields with three years of consecutive wheat-soybean doublecropping. Rotation with fallow, oats or canola in place of wheat controls take-all. Wheat should not be grown more than two consecutive years in the same field. Stripe rust was found at very low levels at two locations in the state. The disease was found in several locations in the eastern United States for the first time. The cool spring was favorable for the disease which caused losses in the Mississippi Valley. Stripe rust is unlikely to become a problem in the Southeast.

Insects

Relatively mild weather during the winter encouraged damaging insect populations to develop in small grains. The Hessian fly, Mayetiola destructor, can cause extensive damage to winter wheat, triticale and barley. Most wheat fields were planted with a resistant variety, and some fields were treated with an at-planting application of insecticide. Hessian fly infestations reached damaging levels in some areas in the southern part of the state. A new Hessian fly biotype (biotype L) is established in northern Georgia and is present in low numbers in southern Georgia. Biotype L can overcome virtually all the Hessian fly resistant varieties currently grown in the state. Varieties showing good levels of Hessian fly resistance at Plains and Griffin in 1999/2000 were 'AGS 2000,' 'NK Coker 9835,' 'Croplan SR218,' 'FFR 516,' 'Pioneer 26R24,' 'Pioneer 26R61,' 'Roane,' and 'Roberts.' 'Santee' was resistant at Plains but susceptible at the Griffin site. 'AgriPro Hickory,' 'Pioneer 2684,' and 'Fleming' had moderate or intermediate levels of resistance at both sites. Although rated as resistant in past years, significant infestations occurred in 'Pioneer 2684' in 1999-2000 indicating that this variety has only moderate level of resistance which is not effective under high levels of Hessian fly pressure. Both rye and oats are good Hessian-fly resistant alternatives to wheat for forage production, because rye is highly resistant and oats are immune to the insect.

The mild winter and dry spring encouraged large populations of aphids to develop throughout the state. Aphids caused direct feeding injury to small grains during head emergence and grain fill. Aphids also transmit barley yellow dwarf virus (BYDV) which can cause large yield reductions in wheat, oats, barley and triticale. BYDV symptoms were present in low to moderate levels throughout the state and the disease caused considerable damage to wheat in some areas this season. Although the level of expression of symptoms varies between varieties, no varieties are truly resistant or tolerant of BYDV infection. Systemic insecticide seed treatments and properly timed foliar applications of insecticides can greatly reduce aphid numbers and minimize BYDV incidence.

The cereal leaf beetle now is established throughout northern and most of southern Georgia. Populations continue to increase and caused noticeable damage this year in the Coastal Plain region. Larvae and adults are present in the spring during grain filling where they remove the upper leaf surface and chew elongated holes in leaves. Populations in most areas still are below the treatment threshold of 0.5 larva or adult per stalk. However, damage was very evident in the northwestern and central Piedmont regions of the state with some fields needing treatment with an insecticide. Cereal leaf beetle can be effectively controlled by a number of insecticides when applied to active larvae. Consult your local county extension agent for a list of recommended insecticides for this insect and for management practices for other insect pests of small grains.
