Janel: Oklahoma Wheat Test Weight Record

Janel: Oklahoma Wheat Test Weight Record

Weatherford, Oklahoma–We’ve been harvesting wheat averaging 40 and 50 bushels per acre. The test weight has been really good at 64 and 65 pounds per bushel. Then all at once to our surprise the test weight was 66.1 to 66.4 pounds per bushel and it stayed that way. That is a record. It’s just unheard of and is an outstanding test weight!

We have been cutting right along. The days have been hot with highs in the 90s and 100s. Clear skies and sunshine work wonders for us harvesters.  Our 10-day forecast is hot and dry too!  It’s only June 8 and there’s wheat being cut in southern Kansas already. We will finish up here pretty soon and move north.
