OSU's Kim Anderson Sees a Half Billion Dollar Oklahoma Wheat Crop on the Horizon for 2010Fri, 07 May 2010 5:35:18 CDT
OSU Grain Marketing Economist Dr. Kim Anderson give us his take on the wheat crop estimates of this week- as well as marketing strategies as we draw closer to harvest here in 2010. Dr. Anderson offers his comments to Clinton Griffiths on SUNUP, the weekly OSU Ag Communications program that is seen on OETA.
Dr. Anderson says that the key to this year's crop versus 2009 is that with more bushels, even with an average wheat price likely to be a few pennies less- the overall economic value of the crop jumps substantially- around $370 million crop last year to more than a half billion dollar wheat crop for 2010 for the state of Oklahoma.
