Kansas Wheat Alliance President Daryl Strouts Says Kansas Crop is in Good Shape

Kansas Wheat Alliance President Daryl Strouts Says Kansas Crop is in Good Shape The Kansas and Oklahoma wheat crops are running neck and neck in overall condition as harvest approaches.

During the OSU Extension wheat field tour at Lahoma this week, Daryl Strouts, president and CEO of Kansas Wheat Alliance, talked with Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Associate Farm Director and Editor KC Sheperd about the current Kansas wheat crop.

Weíre dry in the big wheat growing areas in south central Kansas and weíve got a little freeze damage and stripe rust showing up but generally, I think it looks pretty good, he said.

Extreme western Kansas is very dry and there is a little wheat streak mosaic, he said.

Strouts said many of the K-State wheat varieties are looking and he singled out Monument as a popular variety, Strouts said.

One of my concerns is quality as a lot of farmers are managing for only 40-bushel (per acre) range when many of these varieties are capable of 60 bushels and what that means is they are just not fertilizing enough and we come up short on protein, Strouts said.

Thatís been one of our big pushes to educate farmers that these varieties are real racehorses, he said.

While the crop maturity has been a little delayed, Strouts predicted the harvest would not be anymore than four days late or early.
