Sesame Crop Looks Promising- Take a Look as Well as Listen to Jimmy Kinder on Sesame

Sesame Crop Looks Promising- Take a Look as Well as Listen to Jimmy Kinder on Sesame Several Oklahoma farmers are trying a crop that did not work very well back in the 1980s in the state- Sesame. With new and better varieties- wheat farmers see it as another alternative to continuous wheat production- especially in the more arid parts of southwestern Oklahoma (well arid until July of 2010 when the rains arrived and have stayed).


One farmer trying Sesame in 2010 is Jimmy Wayne Kinder of Walters- and we saw his rapidly developing Sesame crop this week- with these pictures snapped July 7, 2010. Kinder tells us that Hurricane Alex has helped bring enough rain into Cotton County that he has no doubt that the Sesame that he has planted with no safety net of crop insurance has an excellent chance of making a good crop that will be purchased by Sesaco.



Click on the Listen Bar below to hear Kinder's description about the crop. These pictures include Kinder showing a Sesame plant to Oklahoma Congressman Tom Cole, following by a couple of close up shots of Sesame just beginning to bloom- and then the final picture showing this Sesame field with most plants about 18 inches tall.
