WheatWatch 2012- North Central Oklahoma Wheat Pictures Showing Good Crop Conditions

Mon, 13 Feb 2012 10:20:37 CST

WheatWatch 2012- North Central Oklahoma Wheat Pictures Showing Good Crop Conditions WheatWatch2012 has new pictures for you to see of the developing 2012 Hard Red Winter Wheat Crop in Oklahoma. We stopped on Thursday, February 9, 2012 and took several pictures in three different fields in south Kay and northern Noble Counties- just west of I-35 in each case.


The picture above was taken in a field near Billings on February ninth- and you can see the indentation of tire tracks where apparently a fertilizer top dressing application happened. We saw many fields that looked very similar to this field in these two north central counties. This field appeared to be in good to excellent condition.


The first picture below is a second shot of that field still showing the rows laid out by the planter- but just barely.


The next 2 pictures down is of a field in southwestern Kay County- near I-35 and west of Tonkawa. This field has a good stand, but is not as well developed as the field near billings. It does not appear that this field was grazed, but probably was just planted at a later date.


The last two pictures are of a field that has an excellent stand, but does show some cold weather "burning." As Dr. Jeff Edwards was describing to us a few days back, this is of the older forage and will not cause any problems going forward as new growth takes place in this field.


We have a total of 27 new pictures- plus all of the previous shots of the 2012 wheat crop to date- click here for our FLICK set of 2012 Wheat pictures across the state of Oklahoma. Scroll down to get to the pictures dated February 9, 2012 to see all of the shots from these three fields.
