Widespread rainfall across areas of the Great Plains has improved drought and the Kansas Ag Secretary says that might improve the winter wheat crop.
Mike Beam tells Brownfield most of the damage is already done, but “There are a few wheat producers who may get a little bit of a rally in their wheat from rains in May. There maybe new tillers. It may be some unevenness when it ripens. It has helped on the wheat side, but it definitely has helped for seeding our fall crops.”
While yields may not reflect it, Beam says there’s been significant relief in areas that have suffered for three years.
