Kim Anderson Talks Wheat Crop Potential Just Weeks Away from the Combines Pulling Into Southern Oklahoma Fields

Thu, 30 Apr 2020 17:35:35 CDT

Kim Anderson Talks Wheat Crop Potential Just Weeks Away from the Combines Pulling Into Southern Oklahoma Fields Oklahoma State University Extension Grains Market Analyst Dr. Kim Anderson talks about what is going on in the Wheat Markets weekly on SUNUP.

This week, Dr. Anderson tells SUNUP that Oklahoma producers planted more winter wheat for the 2020 crop last fall compared to a year earlier- and are expected to plant more cottton and corn acres in the state this spring. He anticpates a wheat harvest of about the same number of bushels that we harvested a year ago- he calls the current expectations that he has in the 100 to 110 million bushel range- the crop being hurt in many locations by the mid April freeze as well as localized hail.

As far as prices for the 2020 wheat that will be produced- he expects best prices for wheat farmers to sell into may come in the June, July and August time period.
