Janel: Montana Spring Wheat, Durum and Lentils

Janel: Montana Spring Wheat, Durum and Lentils

Great Falls, Montana – Our crew out in Montana has been staying quite busy. They’ve been there nearly a month and have finished winter wheat.  They have been cutting lentils, durum wheat and spring wheat.  They have reported good yields and the weather has been hot and dry.  The wheat has been yielding over 60 bushels per acre.  The moisture is down to 8% and the fields are dry and dusty.  The protein is 14.5% and the test weight 61 pounds.

The lentils they harvested averaged 35 bushels per acre. They have spring wheat to cut yet and will follow up on chickpeas.

    Man, I guess that was a small elevator door! Was a ground guide necessary?
