WheatWatch2012- Latest Pictures of 2012 Crop from Washita and Custer Counties

Tue, 01 Nov 2011 06:03:33 CDT

WheatWatch2012- Latest Pictures of 2012 Crop from Washita and Custer Counties Planting of the 2011 Oklahoma Winter Wheat Crop is nearing an end, with the latest Oklahoma Crop Weather Update reporting that 90% of the expected acreage to be sown this fall is now in the ground, with 68% of that planted emerged and up to stand. The emergence figure is slightly behind the five year average.


On Monday afternoon, October 31st- we saw the full range of wheat field conditions- from fields that had obviously been planted but had NO wheat showing to fields that reflected a green carpet appearance.


We took pictures of a couple of fields that reflected many of the fields we observed at interstate highway speed. The first field we stopped at was on the edge of Canute in Washita County on old Route 66. This field is very similar to many that we saw- a mixture of green and brown being seen from the road and in the camera as we took pictures. The shot above and the first one below show pretty decent emergence that is not that far along at this point.


The two bottom pictures here on this webpage reflect a field that is a little more developed and looks more like a green carpet at first glance from the road. But- you still see the grain drill rows in this field and some thinness when you zoom in. This second field is in Custer County- between Clinton and Weatherford just off I-40.


We have more pictures from these fields for you to see- they are a part of our WheatWatch2012 effort to follow the 2012 wheat crop from planting to harvest next June- a service of the Oklahoma Wheat Commission.


Those additional pictures are up on Flickr for one and all to see- click here for that 2012 WheatWatch Set of wheat pictures.
