Bumper Crops Expected This Fall

KSCB News - September 23, 2009 12:00 am

AP) – Grain elevator operators across Kansas are

bracing for bumper fall crops of corn, sorghum and soybeans.

Storage space is even tighter than normal because many

facilities are still full with unsold winter wheat amid a global

glut in stockpiles.

The lackluster demand for wheat has clogged the nation’s grain

handling pipeline. That’s especially the case in major wheat

producing states where a good winter wheat crop this summer will be

followed by anticipated record harvests of other crops this fall.

The Kansas Grain and Feed Association says it expects grain to

be placed on the ground in some areas. Executive director Tom

Tunnell says wheat from Kansas and Nebraska is being stored as far

south as Enid, Okla.

Poor crops in neighboring Oklahoma has freed up storage space in

terminals there.
