A Western Kansas farmer says excessive rainfall and severe storms have created a challenging winter wheat harvest.

Clay Schemm tells Brownfield he’s received 6-8 inches of rain over the last 6 weeks. “It’s been a little bit of a struggle for us.  The wheat held on to moisture a little bit.  All of this rain coming in has been making it really hard to get into the field and get it out.”

He says many storms have been severe with hail and damaging winds.
