Field Notes

August 2018 Conditions: Wheat harvest could be generalized as somewhat surprising for most of the region—especially where expectations had dropped to “very low” in drought-stricken areas coming into harvest. Read all about it in the current edition of Wheat Varieties for Kansas and the Great Plains, Your Best Choices: 2019. Meanwhile as drought persists, row crops are developing well-ahead of last year’s pace, and certainly ahead of the average at this time. The Kansas Crop Condition Report from USDA NASS rated the Kansas corn crop at 43 percent good, and slightly ahead of last year at corn silking, and 34 percent dough, way ahead of the 14 percent average at the end of July. Soybeans are also well ahead at blooming, and sorghum is heading earlier than usual. Cotton squaring was at 85 percent, way ahead of last year’s 41 percent.
