Grain Sorghum (left) Corn (right). The border row of sorghum was killed by glyphosate used in the corn. The wheat had been harvested with a stripper header. This allows the surface residue to remain in place longer than would happen with a standard header. The snow accumulates and then melts when there is a warm spell. The melting occurs first next to the standing stalk. The repeated snow and melt cycles increased the amount of moisture that can be harvested by the standing residue.
