This was the first year Zwerk and Sons Farm no-tilled all its wheat acres and the yield monitor is capturing the change.

Jeff Schluckbier, who farms with his two cousins, tells Brownfield harvest has been running for about two weeks.

“We’ve seen some of the best yields we’ve had in a while,” he shares.  We were extremely dry, but having said that, we’re still seeing some pretty nice yields.”

Schluckbier says he was prepared for much lower yields after extreme heat during flowering and a very dry June.
