Southwest Oklahoma Crop Conditions: Bad- and Getting Worst

Tue, 12 Apr 2011 6:23:12 CDT

Southwest Oklahoma Crop Conditions: Bad- and Getting Worst The drought in southwest Oklahoma is the worst it has been in decades- some numbers even compare this current stretch of dry weather to the 1920s. Mark Gregory is not sure about that comparision- but he told Ron Hays at the Canola Field Tour Stop in Canadian County on Monday afternoon that wheat and forage conditions are bad- and going further south with every additional day of no rainfall.

He did say that southwest Oklahoma will produce some wheat this June- or before- just not very much.

Also discussed was the challenge of getting spring crops into the ground and growing. With little or no topsoil or subsoil moisture- it will take a couple of rains for crops like cotton or grain sorghum to have any chance of making a crop here in 2011.

Much of what Mark related to us on Monday afternoon was in line with the latest Crop Weather Update- Click here for that report from NASS at USDA.
