The everyday of our family farm
More grains on the non bearded and less processing?
Beardless wheat is a dual purpose wheat that can be grazed and then harvested. It also can make better hay because it has no beards that some stock can find irritating.
A fine still-life!
The colours look almost surreal.
Presumably there is less chaff from the beardless. So the question in my mind is ease of .separation v value of chaff. About which subjects I know absolutely nothing 😉
I suspect there is little difference in harvesting of the 2 types of wheat, but yes there might be a little less chaff with the beardless but the % would be very small due to the amount of chaff across the whole wheat plant.
I’ve seen the bearded wheat more often.
Oh so nice
Such a difference. I can see where the fearless one would be easier for cattle to feed on.
Wheat doesn't look wheat when it's beardless..nice capture of them though.
