Wheat Harvest – Ethredge

Wheat Harvest

Wheat combining was interrupted in many areas by rains recently, some folks got 4 inches over a few days and we are seeing a little sprouting of the wheat in the head. This isn’t much of a problem in feed wheat but for milling wheat for flour it is a problem and of course for wheat for seed it is a problem, as those grains that sprout won’t sprout again when planted.

The point of my story is that we need to get wheat out of the field quickly once its ready. See the sprout and the long roots in my photo I took this week in Southwest Georgia.
