Spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L., excluding durum wheat) was harvested on 5.35 million ha of 3 croplands in the United States in 2011, with 89.1% occurring in the northern Great Plains (NGP) 4 states including North Dakota, Montana, Minnesota, and South Dakota. Montana had the 5 highest percentage of spring wheat acreage (31.3%) among all spring wheat production states 6 (USDA-NASS, 2011a). The 2007 Agricultural Census showed that about half of the spring 7 wheat acreage in Montana was under a continuous spring wheat production system while the 8 other half was in a two-year spring wheat-fallow system. Most of this spring wheat area (95.4%) 9 was rain-fed.
