Keeping this in view, will winter wheat reseed itself?
In fields where wheat was just harvested, one option is to allow the wheat to reseed itself without tilling the land. As long as the soil is covered, this would be considered a cover crop. A better option may be to seed cereal rye into the volunteer wheat, so the rye can utilize the extra moisture in the spring.
Subsequently, question is, do oats reseed themselves? The oats will grow first. If not cut, they will seed out. Oats will not reseed themself for next year unless you leave them standing and no weather knocks them over.
In this regard, can you broadcast cereal rye?
Cereal rye is compatible with multiple crop rotation systems in many regions. It can be used as a strip cover crop, overseeded, drilled, and/or broadcast. It overwinters well, and creates a physical barrier to weeds by producing large amounts of biomass (Clark, 2007).
How long does it take cereal rye to germinate?
Rye grains germinate readily at constant low temperatures (5°C, for example) and some can germinate on a cycle of 16 h at −30°C and 8 h at 20°C over seven days; liquid nitrogen temperatures can also be endured by dry seeds.
