Keep an eye out for weeds and regularly water the crops if growing in a dry climate. Growing cycles vary widely between different varieties. Growing winter wheat will take a lot more time than growing spring wheat varieties.
The most suitable soil for Triticum aestivum is either light clay or heavy loam. Heavier clay and sandy loam can also be used, however, this will usually reduce yields. Adequate drainage needs to be provided and soil pH should be only slightly acidic.
Wheat grows best in cool and moist climate, while for ripening a warm and dry climate is ideal. Therefore, regions with cool winters and hot summers are optimal for growing Triticum aestivum. Direct sunshine is beneficial for the crop.
