Field Notes

October 2017 Conditions: Cool, humid air following signi cant rainfall kept row-crop harvesters out of the eld and delayed winter wheat planting through much of the region. The consequences of this timing could include tillering issues, winterkill, and maturity in the spring. As K-State’s Wheat Specialist Romulo Lollato says, it depends heavily on how we finish out the Fall, and whatever comes with Winter. The possibility of an open Fall and Winter similar to the previous two years could balance out these conditions. The National Weather Service’s one-month precipitation outlook shows a probability of above-normal rainfall. However, the three-month outlook calls for less-than-normal rainfall, and above-normal temperatures (see map below), driest in southern Colorado, and western Texas and Oklahoma.
