Are You Eating My Wheat?
By Shannon Jackson
  

1     When was the last time you ate a sandwich? How about a piece of toast? Anything with bread? How about a cookie? A piece of cake? Anything with flour? Did you know you are eating wheat when you eat those things? Do you know where wheat comes from? Farmers grow wheat in many parts of the United States.
 
2     My family raises wheat crops in north-central Idaho. Our winter wheat is planted in the fall, some time around October. Before we can plant we need to be sure there is enough moisture in the ground, because we are dry-land farmers. That means we don't use big sprinklers to water our crops. We rely on "Mother Nature."
 
3     Our farming is done using "no-till" methods. That means we don't plow or cultivate the ground. Instead, we spray the ground to kill all the weeds and volunteer grain from last year's crop, then burn the stubble, and plant the seed in the ground. Fertilizer is placed in with the seed. We like using no-till, because it causes less erosion and doesn't need as much tractor-time.
