25 Jun Wheat Grower Spotlight: Update from the Pjeskys of Goltry, Okla.
Ryan and Hope Pjesky of Goltry, Okla. is wrapping wheat harvest tomorrow—after harvesting for the past ten days. The couple could been done sooner, but a rew rain showers halted harvested on June 19-20.
Thus far, the couple has received yields as low as 33 and as high as 53 bushels per acre. Tests weights have also ranged from 59 to 61 pounds with most of their wheat above 60 pounds. The dry, windy conditions in northern Oklahoma offered low moisture contents of less than 12 percent.
“We really didn’t know what to expect after comparing our wheat to others in our area,” Hope said.
Ryan and Hope are happy with their yield results because all their wheat yielded average to above average.
Hope Pjesky serves as a member for the Oklahoma Wheat Growers Association Board of Directors, www.owga.com.
