OSU's Kim Anderson Says Wheat Harvest Is Progressing And The Quality Is Looking Good

Thu, 17 Jun 2021 13:35:17 CDT

OSU's Kim Anderson Says Wheat Harvest Is Progressing And The Quality Is Looking Good 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.

This week on SUNUP, Josh Lofton gives a summer crop update and discusses research on the potential benefits of double cropping wheat and soybeans.

In the Mesonet weather report, Wes Lee says summer weather has finally arrived, and the warmer temperatures should get our crop production back on track. Gary McManus provides an update on the latest drought monitor map.

Ravi Jadeja explains the recent cyberattack directed at JBS and tells us what implications this could have for food safety.

Then, Derrell Peel says he expects slightly lower beef production for the rest of the year, which could cause per capita consumption to decrease as well.

Dwayne Elmore shows us how to get the most out of a prescribed burn.

Kris Hiney talks about the impact of West Nile virus on horses.

In Cow-Calf Corner, Rosslyn Biggs explains how to manage foot rot in cattle herds.

Finally, Kim Anderson says though wheat harvest is behind schedule for many producers, it shouldn’t affect prices.
