Kansas grain elevators bracing for big winter wheat harvest

KSAL StaffMay 28, 2016

Grain elevators are bracing for a big winter wheat crop in Kansas.

But elevators are brimming with last year’s crops due to lackluster exports and low prices.

Industry group Kansas Grain and Feed Association says elevators have added storage and have been moving a grain out of the state on long trains to make more room.

Association director Tom Tunnell says elevators are confident they will have enough storage to handle the wheat, but the real consternation is what to do when fall crops come in.

Wheat harvest typically gears up across Kansas in June. He is anticipating a wheat crop of 400 million bushels or better – more than the Agriculture Department or the industry wheat tour had expected.
