general-viewIf I didnít know wheat was planted in this field, I would say thereís nothing there. Donít you agree? Letís look closer.

 


closeup-rowWell, you can see plants in the row and they seem to be surviving.

 


Our single plant just keeps on plugging away. Notice the newest leaf is 4leaf-w-5th-in-whorl2just a little longer than it was last week. The older leaves have been burned by the cold weather. Look at the soil surface around the plant. The soil particles look like granular sugar. If we had a strong wind, what do suppose might happen? I think we might have some wind erosion. Thatís to say the wind would blow the soil particles away.
