Although typically grown as a cash grain, wheat can provide most of the cover crop benefits of other cereal crops, as well as a grazing option prior to spring tiller elongation. Wheat is slower to mature than some cereals, so there is no rush to kill it early in spring and risk compacting soil in wet conditions.

Whether grown as a cover crop or for grain, wheat adds rotation options for underseeding a legume for forage or nitrogen. Wheat is a plentiful source of straw and stubble. Wheat’s fine root system also improves topsoil tilth. Although it generally produces less than rye or barley, the residue can be easier to manage and incorporate.
