The biggest thing with wheat in minnesota is that not a lot of elevators take it in any more. The closest place for me in central MN was 50 miles away. That wasn't an option at the time as I only had gavity boxes. I had to pay to have it hauled. I now have a grain truck. So I would check into that. I straight cut it with my 90 allis chalmers combine. You have to be paitent if you are straight cutting it to make sure it is dry enough. I grew RBO7 hard red spring wheat the last time and it did ok. That is a semi drwarf so you don't get as much straw, but it didn't lodge at all. I also spray a funicide when I spray the weeds. You have to be careful not to spray once you can feel the head in the stalk. If you spray too late it can greatly reduce your yeild. You are better off to spray too early than too late. Usually winter wheat will yeild better than spring wheat. I encourage you to talk to your local agronomist about what grows well in your area. I don't know if any of this helps, but I thought I would say my peice.
