Kansas Wheat Harvesters Seeing Widley Varied Yields

Winter Wheat harvesters in Kansas have now completed 87 percent of their harvest. Kansas Wheat Commission’s Bill Spiegel says yields vary greatly across the state with the Central and Eastern part having the best yields and the worst in the Western part of Kansas.

Spiegel says several wheat acres in Western Kansas had to be abandoned.

Spiegel says they’ve seen some excellent test weights so far.

Spiegel says protein levels vary from 10 to 11 in the good yielding wheat and 14 to 15 in wheat that hasn’t yielded well.
