2010 Oklahoma Wheat Crop Almost at the Finish Line- Looking Much Better Than in 2009

Sun, 16 May 2010 7:34:59 CDT

2010 Oklahoma Wheat Crop Almost at the Finish Line- Looking Much Better Than in 2009 We are rapidly moving closer to the harvest of the 2010 Oklahoma winter wheat crop- and we talked about the state of the crop with OSU Extension Wheat Specialist Dr. Jeff Edwards as people were gathering for the 2010 Lahoma North Central Field Station Wheat Field Day on Friday May 14, 2010.


Dr. Edwards believes that while the wheat crop is not totally "made" at this point in mid May- there are few additional maangement tools that can be used to enhance the crop. He expects a crop somewhere close to what the crop scouts predicted in early May of around 130 to 140 million bushels of wheat to be harvested, unless we continue to get rains into June and it becomes a wet harvest season- then all bets are off.


We talked current conditions across all parts of the state- as well as about the varieties that Dr. Edwards was talking about during the stops he was hosting on the Field Day Tour.


Click on the Listen Bar below to hear our conversation with Dr. Jeff Edwards- the picture here is of the wheat variety that he had the highest praise for as we talked with him- Billings. He told us that for the north central section of the state- that no variety has a better package of characteristics that can maximize wheat quality and quantity.
