2022-04-11 KBS Planted soft white spring wheat in LTAR ACSE ASP3 fields and plots. Also included 5 gallons of 10-34-0 fertilizer in furrow. Planted 3/4" deep in 7.5 inch rows, no tilled. In field ASP3F1, the grain drill had a blockage in one of the seed tubes, which resulted in one row not planting for an unknown area. There were also two row units that planted too deep for part of the field - the depth control failed at some point during the course of planting the field. The wheat seed was treated with a fungicide.
