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.
