OSU's Kim Anderson Says 2016 Wheat Crop Needs Both Quality and Quantity

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 22:18:29 CDT

OSU's Kim Anderson Says 2016 Wheat Crop Needs Both Quality and Quantity OSU Grain Marketing Economist Dr. Kim Anderson has been on the road in southwest Oklahoma this week and says most of the producers in that area are relatively satisfied with their 2016 wheat crop so far.

Anderson tells SUNUP host Dave Deken that while farmers are mainly looking for quantity this harvest, elevators are hoping for both quantity - and quality - wheat. He says strong test weights and increased protein levels would allow elevators to blend with the lower test weight wheat from the last few years and get it out into the food market.

You can watch Kim and Dave this weekend on SUNUP, or you can get an early listen to his comments by clicking on the LISTEN BAR below.

In addition to Kim's wheat harvest outlook on SUNUP, here's the rundown on the OSU Ag Communications production that returns to OETA this weekend:

This week on SUNUP, Dave Lalman discusses results from an ongoing limit-grazing study with cattle.

- In the Mesonet report, Al Sutherland shows us how the recent rains changed the soil moisture down to 10-inches and Gary McManus illustrates the expansion of drought across Oklahoma.

- Then, Gant Mourer says 2015 brought the second largest participation in the Oklahoma Quality Beef Network.

- In Cow-Calf Corner, Glenn Selk has advice on vaccinating cattle in the correct place.

- Finally, SUNUP travels to Pittsburg County, to see how a 4-H National Award winner is making a difference for cancer patients in McAlester and beyond.

Join Lyndall Stout and Dave Deken for SUNUP:
Saturdays at 7:30 a.m. & Sundays at 6 a.m. on OETA-TV
