Oklahoma Grain and Feed Association Releases Estimates for the 2010 Oklahoma Hard Red Winter Wheat CropWed, 05 May 2010 12:59:53 CDT
Oklahoma Grain and Feed Association Annual Wheat Report
The Oklahoma Grain and Feed Association held their annual meeting this week in Oklahoma City and Wednesday morning, discussed the 2010 Hard Red Winter
Wheat crop for Oklahoma. OSU Area Agronomist, Roger Gribble, talked with us concerning the numbers, as well as the quality and possible problems concerning the 2010 crop that was presented to the OGFA.
Roger said estimates as of May 1 pegged the Oklahoma wheat harvest to yield about 141 million bushels, nearly double from the 2009 crop. He said the wheat is
moving along nicely, but of course a big concern is what "Mother Nature" could still throw at us. Another major concern is both stripe and leaf rust, a major issue
yet to play out. He added that most of the Oklahoma wheat is nearly headed out.
Gribble visited with Radio Oklahoma's Ed Richards and you can hear the complete interview by clicking on the listening bar below.
