Arkansas farmers begin wheat harvest

6/10/2013 at 12:00 a.m.


Wheat harvest is finally underway in Arkansas. 

This time last year, most producers were finishing up their wheat. This year, however, cool and wet weather has put the crop on a more typical schedule. 

Initial yields look good, but it’s still early. There is some concern that those early-May freezes might reduce yield potential and test weight.  

For more information, contact Matt King at 501-228-1297.

This harvest shot was sent to us from Jon Carrol of Moro, chairman of ARFB's Wheat & Feed Grains Division.
