Wheat Harvest Report

Wheat harvest is underway in my area a good 2 weeks ahead of what might have been considered an early harvest in the past.  Weather is perfect. The farmer in the top photo stopped and visited a bit.  His moisture is 15%, but he still has some green heads. A good rain last week might have fixed that.  He said he is averaging 65 bushels per acre.  Not too bad, but not great.  He did not use fungicide.  When I was  a kid, wheat harvest lasted a week or longer.  Big machinery and less acreage will have it over with in 3 days.  I am expecting lots of double crop soybeans if we get a rain.
