Wheat Progresses Differently Across the State- and we have your SUNUP preview

Thu, 03 Nov 2011 16:07:39 CDT

Wheat Progresses Differently Across the State- and we have your SUNUP preview With news spreading across the state of good wheat stands for some producers, the outlook for wheat has changed over the past week. Dr. Kim Anderson, Oklahoma State University Grain Marketing Specialist, says given what producers started with and the outlook a couple of months ago with continuing drought and temperatures, the reports are exceptional.

The condition of these wheat stands vary across the state with some regions getting more rain than others. When it comes to the northern region, around Kay, Garfield, Grant and even into Kingfisher county, Anderson says the reports show exceptional stands of wheat. As you move south, the stands aren't quite as good. Anderson says they are still good quality but not as good as the north.

Down into southwestern Oklahoma, around Altus, Anderson says there is still a potential for average quality wheat despite that the fact that it is drier there and they have less subsoil moisture. However, the panhandle region of Oklahoma and even Texas is a completely different story. Anderson adds that reports just aren't good and the stands simply aren't there.
