Fenster, C.R., Boosalis, M.G. and Weihing, J.L. (1972) Date of planting studies of winter wheat and winter barley in relation to root and crown rot grain yields and quality (Research Bulletin No. 250)
This study was undertaken to determine the nature of root and crown rot of wheat and to ascertain the proper time to plant winter wheat so as to conserve moisture, minimize root and crown rot and thereby maximize yield. Studies conducted for 15 years at several locations in western Nebraska reveal that planting date is a significant factor for higher yields, particularly in certain years.
