OSU's Kim Anderson Talks with SUNUP about How Wheat Harvest is Impacted by COVID-19

Thu, 09 Apr 2020 18:48:55 CDT

OSU's Kim Anderson Talks with SUNUP about How Wheat Harvest is Impacted by COVID-19 Oklahoma State University Extension Grains Market Analyst Dr. Kim Anderson talks about what is going on in the Wheat Markets weekly on SUNUP.

This week Dr. Anderson talks about the 2020 Wheat Harvest now underway in India and how COVID-19 is impacting the harvest. Dr. Anderson says that harvest crews in that country are having to deal with checkpoints where sanitizing crews are checking the workers and cleaning the equipment.

By the time that the hard red winter wheat harvest is nearing the Red River in southwestern Oklahoma around June 1st, 20% of the harvest will be completed globally. At this point, it's too early to say- but custom harvest crews may face checkpoints of their own in the southern plains- not unlike the situation that they faced a few years ago when the state of Oklahoma was inspecting harvest equipment coming up from Texas in areas that had scab. Crews should be able to move- but there could be extra rules and inspections to deal with in the 2020 harvest season.

This week on SUNUP, we learn about the role of OSU Extension during the COVID-19 pandemic.

- Then, Bob Hunger explains how diseases may cause wheat to turn yellow.

- In the Mesonet weather report, Wes Lee shows us how wheat is impacted by freezing temperatures. Gary McManus looks at current rainfall data and compares it to the average rainfall totals.

- Misha Manucheri has information about identifying weeds that are appearing in winter crops.

- Kris Hiney explains why it is important to have a detailed plan for animal care ahead of disaters and pandemics.

- In Cow-Calf Corner, Glenn Selk discusses how body condition can impact a cows return to estrus.

- Darren Scott has information on food safety during the coronavirus pandemic.

- Finally, Kim Anderson says the world wheat harvest has begun in India, as the country manages the spread of COVID-19.
