Oklahoma Wheat Commission Executive Director Mike Schulte Thinks Oklahoma Wheat Crop Estimate of 141 Million Bushels About Right

Tue, 11 May 2010 5:38:07 CDT

Oklahoma Wheat Commission Executive Director Mike Schulte Thinks Oklahoma Wheat Crop Estimate of 141 Million Bushels About Right The Executive Director of the Oklahoma Wheat Commission, Mike Schulte, calls the 2010 Oklahoma Hard Red Winter Wheat Crop a "normal" crop. We talked with Mike about what he has seen across the state, as well as his travels this past week as a part of the Wheat Quality Council's Kansas wheat crop tour.

Schulte says that each area of the state seems to have their own particular problems that seem to be keeping us from having an exceptional crop for this harvest season that will be starting in a matter of weeks.

In southwest Oklahoma, it's several fields with strip rust issues. In west central Oklahoma, it's thin stands that are likely to give us weed problems as we approach harvest. Across much of the state, where we have had adequate moisture, the concern has been nitrogen levels- did we put enough nitrogen on to have maximum yields as well as adequate protein percentages?

And in northwest Oklahoma- especially as you get closer to Kansas- dry conditions that stretch from Buffalo east through Alfalfa County have cut into the potential of the crop.
