OSU's Kim Anderson Talks with SUNUP about The Early Reports of the Oklahoma Wheat HarvestThu, 04 Jun 2020 16:21:00 CDT
Oklahoma State University Extension Grains Market Analyst Dr. Kim Anderson talks about what is going on in the Wheat Markets weekly on SUNUP.
Oklahoma's Wheat Harvest is quickly crossing the state. Dr. Anderson says the early reports are looking relatively good. He said the reports in Southern Oklahoma are showing some lower yields there with quite a bit of wheat being cut for hay, or being put up for hay, but that the test weights are good. Dr. Anderson says he thinks with more warm, dry weather the harvest is likely to move across the state pretty quickly.
