Field Notes

October 2019 Conditions: Compare with last year's extremely wet wheat-planting season, this year's crop is going in amid more favorable conditions, generally speaking. While the region received ample rain during last crop's growing season, some parts of the Great Plains are no experiencing some level of drought — abnormally dry to moderate drought — in southwest Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas and southern Colorado. According to the USDA, the 2019-2020 wheat production is up 4% from last year, thanks to yield improvements, despite lower planted area.
