It would be the same as planting winter wheat in your area.

Thanks

So that means planting would be around Oct-Nov and harvesting about July?

I thought Spelt in Denmark would e a Spring crop.

Me too.

I found this article which does mention Spring planting:

*you'll have to read the text closely*

Thanks "Stone", I read the article and it's interesting really, but seems that spring Spelt was only a trial and not the ideal Spelt season.

If anyone can shed some more info, It would be a great help.

Many thanks to all helpers here

I dont read it that way at all.
The "trial" is the unusual grains being grown.

Go back and read the article again, and see if the way that it's written doesn't suggest spring planting as the norm.

Here's a PDF about spelt growing in Maine where both autumn varieties and spring varieties are discussed.

It only seems obvious, both winter planted wheat and spring planted are grown here in the states.
