Whither the wheat crop?

Much of the region’s wheat crop faced an uphill struggle after the late, wet spring. By most accounts, though, the crop on balance has rallied nicely in July.

I went along today on part of the Wheat Quality Council’s annual inspection tour of area wheat fields. I saw some really nice-looking wheat. I also saw some wheat that isn’t nearly as advanced as it should be. Bottom line: There’s reason for optimism, but the weather needs to keep cooperating.
