Double Crop Opportunity

Double Crop Opportunity

Wheat harvest has begun in Southwestern Oklahoma.  This early harvest of wheat provides a great opportunity to double crop sesame.

Sesame can endure the summer heat of the Southwest. Traditional storms interrupt harvest. With harvest advancing ahead of the storms, timely rain will allow sesame to be no-tilled into wheat stubble.

With an improved soil moisture profile and high temperatures pushing all crops forward, there has never been a better opportunity to try double crop sesame.

Last Weeks Oklahoma Plantings are Progressing Well

Adam Cordes was among the first to plant in Southwest Oklahoma. He planted on Sunday May 6th and the seedlings are just about to emerge 3 days later.

We know heat is plentiful here, just need a little moisture along the way.

Drilled Sesame in the Coastal Bend

On April 29th we blogged about Ross and Allen Moench drilling sesame in the Coastal Bend.

The sesame was actually drilled on April 23rd. Ross stated that some of the plants were emerged in two days and a full drill was up in 5 days. This picture was taken May 6th or almost 14 days after planting. This is an exceptional stand we are very proud of in the Coastal bend.

Ross and Allen use Miller fertilizer products and applied 2#/ac of Sol-U-Gro 12-48-8, 10oz/ac of CALFA and 3oz/ac of Cytoplex. They pushed 8 gal/ac of water as a carrier. Ross said this was the limit of his system and the water was intended to help the seed have better moisture and soil contact than without.

Yesterday, they received 4/10 inch rain that should support the crop sufficiently through the pre-reproductive stage with the good moisture profile they started with.

Early Sesame, Good Conditions in the Valley
