Wheat Harvest Activity Picks Up in Parts of Kansas

KSAL StaffJune 19, 2013
Test cutting is now underway as far north as McPherson County and as far west as Clark County.

The winter wheat harvest is spreading across parts of south-central Kansas.

The industry trade group Kansas Wheat said Wednesday in its first harvest report of the season that test cutting is now underway as far north as McPherson County and as far west as Clark County.

The OK Co-op elevator in Kiowa has taken in about 350,000 bushels of wheat, with test weights averaging about 59 pounds per bushel.

A few isolated fields were harvested last week near Kiowa and some farmers in Sumner County on the Oklahoma border began cutting Tuesday after fields dried out from recent rains.

Anthony Farmer’s Co-op is reporting test weights there averaging about 60 pounds per bushel. The elevator in Anthony had taken in 305,000 bushels by Wednesday morning.
