Getting the seed in the ground in the first place. A lot of farmers in northwestern Minnesota seeded wheat right up to the deadline in June for being eligible for Federal Crop Insurance.

We are irrigated farmers in the Arkansas Valley of Colorado. We planted wheat and lost it before we could irrigate it this spring

Trying to find a part only to have to travel 3 hrs. to get it late on a Sat. evening. Only 1 availible in the whole state of KS. The other was 6 hrs. away in NEb and they didn’t answer the phone since they weren’t cutting there yet

Humidity, Mud in the fields, having everything ready to go and needing to piece around in the fields to find dry wheat….

Our struggle right now is deciding which variety will be best for replanting in the fall. The drought of last fall didn’t help, but the rains didn’t help either when they finally did come. Ah, the gamble of being a farmer!

We have never had to wait this long to start cutting! We should be done by now. The great white combine from the sky cut out 90% of our crop for us last month. The field we cut yesterday made 9.9 bu/ac. Really hoping that when ever the next field is dry enough it will at least triple that amount.
