OSU's Kim Anderson Talks with SUNUP about Good Test Weights for the Oklahoma Wheat Harvest Oklahoma State University Extension Grains Market Analyst Dr. Kim Anderson talks about what is going on in the Wheat Markets weekly on SUNUP.

Wheat harvest is wrapping up across Oklahoma and Dr. Anderson says he is hearing that the test weight are exceptional. He says we are probably going to average 63 to 64 pound test weights. The Protein is all over the board, anywhere between 8% to 15.5% protein across the state. The average for protein might end up anywhere from averaging 10.5 or 11.2 so far, but Anderson said the jury is still out on what protein will look like for the harvest.

This week on SUNUP, Todd Baughman has information for crop producers following the recent court ruling regarding the use of Dicamba.

- In Food Whys, Darren Scott tells us what probiotics do for our bodies and which foods contain probiotics.
