Kim Anderson Says 2013 a 'Jekyll and Hyde' Year for Oklahoma Wheat Crop

Kim Anderson Says 2013 a 'Jekyll and Hyde' Year for Oklahoma Wheat Crop
In his preview to this week's SUNUP program, OSU Extension Small Grains Marketing Specialist Kim Anderson says the 2013 wheat crop will go down in the record books as a year of two different wheat crops.

"In the western part of the state, the Panhandle and southwestern and southern parts of the state, you've got a very poor crop. A lot of acres had zero bushels; they were abandoned, then five to ten bushels per acre, a lot of 15 to 20 bushels per acre. That's good in some of those areas.

"But you get up into central Oklahoma, up in the northern parts of Oklahoma, you've got 30, 40, 50 and some 60-or higher-bushels per acre.   Some farmers are getting record crops or record yields. So you've got the Jekyll and Hyde this year."

Anderson said we won't know the final tally on statewide production for another month.   You can click on the LISTEN BAR at the bottom of this story to hear more of Anderson's analysis.

Also this week on SUNUP: crews will visit farms in Caddo and Ellis counties. Interviews include members of the Krehbiel family, David Nowlin, Justin Barr, Todd Atha, Curtis Torrance and Mike Schulte.

-In Cow-Calf Corner, Glenn Selk explains the importance of including ionophores in the Oklahoma Gold and SuperGold programs.

-Megan Rolf tells how cattle genetics may impact bloat.

-Terry Bidwell and Harry Fritzler show how the National Resources Inventory of Grazing Land study is conducted.

-Finally, in a new segment called Food Whys, Jake Nelson gives a scientific explanation for color change in ground beef.
