Wheat is an excellent grazing crop, so producers in Escambia County plant winter wheat for forage as well as grain. winter wheats are planted in the autumn, from September through December. Winter wheat sprouts before freezing occurs, then becomes dormant until the soil warms up in the spring. Wheat grown in this area is planted in the northwestern area known as Walnut Hill.
