How do you pass the time when waiting in line at the grain elevator?


Wheat leaves curling or stressed plants? Syngenta wants to help your wheat mitigate stress brought on by adverse weather. Poor grain fill, small head size, reduced tillering, short plants and curled leaves are just a few of the inhibitors to wheat quality and yield when weather conditions are adverse.  Syngenta recommends wheat growers address these weather challenges early with best management practices and proactive fungicides to enhance stress tolerance and provide disease protection.  The physiological benefits from Quilt® brand fungicides from Syngenta may help cereal crops better use the sun’s energy, increase water-use efficiency and extend grain fill as the final step in optimizing yields this season.  We encourage all growers to act early this season to mitigate stress and defeat disease. Syngenta is a proud sponsor of All Aboard Wheat Harvest.  We wish you luck on this week’s giveaway question!

Product performance assumes disease presence.

    In Oklahoma the lines haven’t been very long this year! We’ve spent more time waiting in the field. I usually use the time in line to catch up on news and emails on my phone. I check the markets and read market analysis. And of course talk to others that are in line.

    its the time to see your neighbors and catch up on all the news in the area, alway take something to eat have coffee or for me some ice tea. look the truck over while waitng make sure everything is still in tack, since i dont have time to read my magazines i take them with. most of all in a line that long you look and say to the man up stairs God thanks for a great year.

    Grab an ice tea out of my cooler and visit with the other drivers about how the wheat is doing and their harvest. We really don’t have much down time at our elevator as they have 2 places to unload the trucks.

    Cellphones, laptops, email, and catching up on messages from home and around the country — while waiting for a load.
    One, two, three generations earlier — We would catch a nap under the truck, preparing for an all-night move after finishing a job, or maybe read a dog-eared paperback Louis La’Mour novel before swapping it for another at the elevator. Two weeks later another of your crew members would swap for that same danged paperback.
    Ogalla, NE has a moving picture show which operated during harvest about 18 hours daily in a huge quonset hut.
    Park your truck in a three hour line at the elevator and catch a movie, probably a Randolph Scott or Gary Cooper western, with a Lash LaRue serial.
    Spend 35 cents for a quarter pounder hamburger and one-quart malted milkshake, with real fruit blended in. After spending 25 cents for a movie, Ogalla put a real dent in a harvest hand’s wallet,waiting for the elevator to unload a three-ton stake bed.

    anymore all the elevators are closed around us, so I haven’t had the pleasure of waiting in line. we home store everything then have to ship it 100 miles to the snake river. If I have to wait it probably means I have to fix something at the bins.
