Oklahoma Wheat Harvest In Full Swing
05/21/2012

 Harvest is now under way of wheat in
Oklahoma with officials and farmers optimistic that the 2012 crop
will far surpass last year's drought-ravaged crop.
     Debbie Wedel (WAY'-dul) with the Oklahoma Wheat Commission says
nearly 155 million bushels are expected to be harvested - up from
70.4 million last year.
     The 2011 crop was the smallest since the 1950s.
     Wheat farmer David Gammill of Chattanooga, Oklahoma says he's
getting 30 to 40 bushels per acre after averaging 9 last year.
     Gammill said prices are about $6 per bushel - with the
break-even point about $5 per bushel.
