Oklahoma Wheat Harvest Underway
05/14/2012

Oklahoma winter wheat farmers are starting
to harvest, and agriculture officials say good weather has made for
a much stronger crop this year.
     The U.S. Department of Agriculture forecasts that Oklahoma will
harvest 154.8 million bushels over 4.3 million acres. Oklahoma on
average produces 110 million bushels per year.
     The harvest began several weeks earlier than usual, with the
mild spring providing ideal conditions for wheat to grow and ripen.
     Oklahoma yields are expected to be 36 bushels per acre, compared
with 22 bushels last year. Growers planted an estimated 4.3 million
acres of wheat, up from 3.2 million last year
