organic wheat seedOrganic Champlain Wheat

Triticum aestivum

Very Rare.  Pkg contains only 25 seeds. 

 

The following history of Champlain wheat was published in the Rural New Yorker in 1877:  "Champlain was produced in 1870 by Mr. Cyrus Pringle in his endeavors to unite the hardiness of the Black Sea with the fine qualities of Golden Drop.  Several varieties were the result of this cross, from which the above was chosen as showing increased vigor and productiveness over its parents. "

Mr. Cyrus Pringle did his wheat breeding at Charlotte, VT near Lake Champlain.  This wheat is evidently named for the lake.

Spring Planted.

Hard red.

Mid-season to late.

Awned.

The lower leaves of Champlain are distinctly pubescent.

The objective when planting wheat is to establish a uniform stand of at least 25 plants per square foot with adequate fall growth for tiller development and an established root system for winter survival. Planting methods include drilling, broadcast seeding, and aerial seeding.  Specific seeding rates will vary widely with topography, climate, and management approach.  In general, stick to 30-40 seeds per square foot at a depth of 1.5 inches.  Wheat will sprout best in soil that is slightly compacted, so it's good to tamp the bed slightly after planting.  For more information, see http://www.uky.edu/Ag/GrainCrops/ID125Section4.ht
