Dry to wet wheat pulls through


A Michigan farmer says he’s surprised how well his wheat held up this year with weather extremes.

Sanilac County’s Dennis Gardner tells Brownfield his farm received about 10 inches of rain the past two weeks.

“The tile was definitely running, and I had to turn on the four-wheel drive in one field to get through a wet spot taking wheat off, so when you have that this time of the year, we definitely have enough moisture,” he shares.
