I don't know your typical rotation or how much moisture you normally get. Probably the easiest way to start would be a spring oats, barley, or triticale crop for hay or grazing. Here, that would be terminated mid to late June, leaving the ground fallow for the rest of the summer till wheat planting time. start on a small scale, and try different approaches to see what best fits your situation. Each year is different, so you'll need several years to judge results.
That’s kinda what I’m leaning towards is a mix of those for grazing. The problem I have with it is will the crops have much volunteer in with my next wheat crop? wanting to do a rowcrop-forage-wheat rotation but worried that the forage would leave volunteer seeds and mess up the wheat. Or is this of little concern?
