The 2011 Central Oklahoma Wheat Crop- Looking for a Rain

Wed, 19 Jan 2011 5:30:21 CST

The 2011 Central Oklahoma Wheat Crop- Looking for a Rain Central Oklahoma wheat fields need a good rain. Brad Tipton, Extension Ag Educator in Candian County, tells us that most of the wheat acres in Canadian County had enough moisture back in October to be planted and get up to stand. He believes that if we can get some moisture on the crop that is now in the ground- we may well end up with the a good wheat crop come harvest in 2011.

He adds that there was limited wheat pasture in his county- but the forage available is long gone.

We also talked about his farmers adding winter canola to their rotation- and he says that in 2010, several had excellent canola crops and were pleased with the harvest results. More acres were planted to canola this past fall- and Tipton believes that even more canola will be added in future years as farmers continue traveling up the learning curve on how to grow the crop.
