An East Central Kansas farmer says winter wheat harvest is in full swing and it’s exceeded her expectations.
Jacquelyne Leffler tells Brownfield she’s been surprised by the quality of the crop. “Test weight we’ve been seeing anywhere from 60 to 62.5 and on yield we’ve been seeing anywhere from 50 to mid-70s. One field we averaged over 70.”
She says it faced several challenges during the growing season, but rebounded before harvest.
