A Picture Says a Thousand Words- Your 2011 Oklahoma Hard Red Winter Wheat Crop

Fri, 15 Apr 2011 6:19:01 CDT

A Picture Says a Thousand Words- Your 2011 Oklahoma Hard Red Winter Wheat Crop Drought conditions in western Oklahoma continue to hammer our 2011 winter wheat crop- and Allen Entz of Hydro captured a dramatic picture showing the dead versus alive drama unfolding in our winter wheat fields. You will notice in the wheat that is still green that it has already started to head out- an indication that this side of the field is also in trouble due to the dry conditions.

Allen writes us in an email about the picture he has provided:

"I took this picture on Wednesday just southeast of Hydro by one of our farms and I thought it was interesting enough to pass along to you. The dead wheat on the left is on top of a terrace and a product of our states severe drought. The wheat on the right is in the terrace channel where snow drifts accumulated a couple dry months ago."

He adds "keep praying for rain."
