study just finished by osu tech,indicates that a cover crop,such as wheat,oats etc,doesnt use moisture from a following crop.that the moisture content in the soil is basicaly the same. according to this study the moisture used is moisture that would have been lost anyway by fallowing between crops. timing has always been the key when double or even triple cropping. finding a crop that will mature and be harvested in the time you have is the biggest problem. we always planted wheat in corn rows years ago,even had drills made for just this. but back then we were harvesting corn largely by hand. how much you would lose of the wheat when machine harvesting i couldnt say. I've never done it since we grew very little corn ,never enough to machine harvest. One thing i would be interested in knowing is what this does to insects such as corn worm. one advantage of corn/ soybean rotation is the beans help keep insects down to an extent. i dont think wheat would do this, so that may be a consideration. like I say i'm not a corn person,way too dry on most of my places,but we always planted wheat with corn years ago when we did raise it,and i dont recall the wheat overstressing the corn any more than our normal lack of rainfall did.

I've read alot of articles on the subject. I was just curious being the drought we are experiencing this year. I'm an hour north of the I-90 corridor so it was close enough for comparison, although they are worse off then us down there. None the less, the little bit of rain we finally got helped the beans. Seeing alot of 30-40 bushel. The corn on the other hand was done already. Seeing anywhere from 5-75 bushel so far. Haven't heard of any over a 100 yet. Mind you the 75 bushel corn in a normal year would be 175.
