Sluggish winter wheat harvest in Kansas continues with wet weather

SHARE NOW

Winter wheat harvest has been delayed in the US’s top producing state due to severe storms and significant rain events.

Aaron Harries with the Kansas Wheat Commission tells Brownfield it’s usually wrapped up by now, but “(It’s) almost 65 percent complete, and it’s really moving along slowly in the western part of the state because farmers are seeing frequent rainstorms coming off the High Plains at night and then they’re waiting for their fields to dry out.”

He tells Brownfield yields have been variable with additional weed pressure and lodging from wind and hail, but the quality is good.
