OSU's Kim Anderson Says Wheat Harvest Is Progressing And The Quality Is Looking GoodThu, 17 Jun 2021 13:35:17 CDT
Oklahoma State University Extension Grains Market Analyst Dr. Kim Anderson talks about what is going on in the Wheat Markets. Dr. Anderson says harvest is progressing up through the state, though not as quickly as would be ideal. This week Dr. Anderson is talking about the wheat harvest progress.
Anderson says the humidity has been a hindrance and caused delayed harvest times, but the recent sun and dry weather should help out. He hopes to see harvest make its way up to Northern Oklahoma soon, possibly even this week. "The quality of the crop looks relatively good, and the test weights all reported probably above 60 pounds," Anderson said. He added that one farmer reported a 66 pound test weight. "Some areas that have small kernels, but overall I think it is a relatively good crop," Anderson said. To hear more from Dr. Anderson, click or tap below.
