Wheat Harvest Reaches Nebraska Border

KSAL StaffJune 28, 2013

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – The Kansas wheat harvest has now reached the Nebraska border.

The industry group Kansas Wheat reported Thursday that combines are running from Norton to Marshall counties along the Nebraska border.

Ag Valley Co-op in Norton says just a few thousand bushels of wheat have been brought in so far. Early test weights have been running 55 to 56 pounds per bushel. Many fields still have a green cast to them, but harvest is expected to pick up by early next week.

Harvest is about halfway complete around Hoisington in central Kansas. The United Ag Service elevator in Hoisington says yields have been ranging from 20 to 50 bushels an acre there. Test weights have been coming at 56 to 62 pounds per bushel.
