Adopt A Wheat Field Home Page


Wheat is the most widely grown crop in Kansas and one of the most important crops grown world wide. Kansas is the number one wheat producing state in the country. We eat wheat in some form almost every day. But have you ever thought about where wheat comes from or how it grows as you are eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, or while making a cake, or eating pancakes?

The purpose of this web page is to have fun while watching wheat grow throughout the year. We will see how the soil is prepared for planting, see a drill plant the seed, and then we will see the wheat seedling emerge from the soil and watch it grow the rest of the year. I have picked a spot in a wheat field on the Agronomy Farm north of Manhattan to watch through the year. That way we can see how the same plants have changed from the last time.
