Our crazy mixed up weather along with the drought has already got the wheat heading.Its 2-3 weeks too early.Weve had 3 days in a row of upper 80's-low 90's.

Saw this today in both Kansas and MO.Alot of the wheat is only 6-12" tall.If theres anything there we may have to unlock the floating bar and cut it like soybeans.

2nd year of a failed wheat crop here , i did see a little that looked fair . there will be several thousand acres here that wont be fit to cut.
To all the white people of America who honestly feel that the black people have been so mistreated and given such a bad deal in this country I can only suggest that you should move yourself and your family, if you have such, into one of their neighborhoods and do everything necessary to become a integral part of their society, make every effort to blend your lifestyle into theirs, go to their stores, churches, and social gathering places for your needed things in life. send your children to schools where their children are the majority of the enrollment, and where they mostly compose the faculty and administration, get a job where they are in the majority and hold the important management positions...and most importantly of all, go the many prisons where they are being, justly...and unjustly, incarcerated and visit them and see them trying to be rehabilitated, but obviously so suppressed in their efforts that rehabilitation is just impossible. Then, after you have really gotten to know these people...many, many, many of them, from all walks of their lives and societies, and seeing their obvious appreciation of life in America, come forward and make suggestions as to how we white people should go about changing our ideals and society to better accept and integrate these people into our lives so that in a reasonable amount time there will be no more distinctions or differences in how we whites and blacks view each other and the hoped for blending and melding of our races can be completed and we can love and appreciate one another as you must think God intended.

I cannot take credit for these words ,Wish i could

Did a little probing and digging here today. The corn ground has got a little moisture under it. The hay, pasture, and wheat ground are really dry. It rained just a very little today. We could sure use some good soaking rains.

Ours is heading out too....and its short too. I figure that its a good 2 weeks early. Guess it was all the warm days we had back in the winter that has got it messed up. We hit a few days in January and February in the 70's and 80's...

Sorry to hear that Blaine, I don't have any wheat, but planted 460 acres of corn this week. We are getting dry, 'posed to have showers this morning, then again tonight, we had .7" a week ago Friday. I sure don't like the way this year is starting out, I've already planted 2 river bottoms that usually have wet spots in them and we have been in the mid to upper 80's this week too with a couple of days that were too windy to spray or spread fertilizer. I have 265 acres of corn to go, most of it is on bottom ground and wet natured upland and is all within 2 miles of the house and less.

Blaine;

Sorry to hear you are getting the short end of the stick again this year. We are off to a pretty good start here. I finished planting my 70 acres of corn yesterday and just beat a little shower. It started raining as I was making the last round but it wasnt enough to stop a person. A half hour later the sun came out. Could have kept on going. We planted sweet corn after that too. Then last night we got a nice soaking inch or so of rain here in town. I hope we got it at Dads. That will make things sprout up nicely.

Our crazy mixed up weather along with the drought has already got the wheat heading.Its 2-3 weeks too early.Weve had 3 days in a row of upper 80's-low 90's.

Saw this today in both Kansas and MO.Alot of the wheat is only 6-12" tall.If theres anything there we may have to unlock the floating bar and cut it like soybeans.

You're still in high risk of frost kill too are'nt you?? I wish the best for all you folks in those situations.

OP

Here we are still at a slight risk of frost damage. However, as long as the frost doesn't get the growing point(which is underground up untill fairly late) you are basically O.K. Heck, we can have frosts in May. I'd like to start on Beans next week, but am a little gunshy yet. However, if the weather stays like it is, it's going to be very hard not to go.

Yes,it could still frost or freeze here.In 2005 we had a week of very cold weather at the end of April and in to early May.It frosted several nights and got below freezing one night.One variety of wheat took it fine while it knocked 25 bpa off the other variety.

If it would just rain soon we could still have decent wheat.In 1981 the wheat headed short and early.It started raining in mid May and the wheat started out making 60 bpa and I was cutting it to the ground.It then rained 24" in 6 weeks and we mudded wheat out up in to August.I had out 300 acres that ended up making 40 bpa as it the end it had all shattered out.
