Lack of Rain Devastating to the 2011 Oklahoma Wheat CropMon, 04 Apr 2011 6:27:26 CDT
The 2011 Oklahoma Winter Wheat Crop continues to go downhill as warm windy conditions are sucking the last of the moisture from fields statewide. Southwest Oklahoma wheat farmers are now faced with fields that will likely zero out as crop insurance adjusters take a look at them. If they get rain in the near future, that will set them up for planting a summer crop in the weeks ahead.
Dr. Edwards holds out hope for north central Oklahoma. He tells us in both a video update as well as a longer audio version that the north central wheat fields are holding on pretty well- and that if we can get some timely rains, "we can still produce a very nice wheat crop in north central Oklahoma."
