As farmers, we do our best to create an environment that encourages positive plant responses like higher yields. For example, we may alter the environment by planting a different population, utilizing a new method of working soil or, perhaps the most obvious, adding a fertilizer. All of this is done in the hopes that the plant’s response, or its phenotypic alteration in response to its environment, creates additional yield and profit.

As wheat harvest approaches, there are a few important things to keep in mind. First, we want to harvest wheat after the dough stage has passed. You can determine if your wheat is past this stage by threshing a wheat head in your hand and placing the seed either in your mouth or between your fingernail and forefinger. If the wheat is past the dough stage, it will be firm and not easily torn in two.
