Cold Temperatures Threaten Wheat Crop
05/03/2011
 

 

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma agriculture officials say it's too

early to say whether a cold snap will affect the state's wheat and

other crops that already have been affected by a prolonged drought.

The National Weather Service has issued a freeze watch for the

Oklahoma Panhandle, and a frost advisory covers 42 counties in

western, central and northern areas of the state from 2 a.m. to 9

a.m. Tuesday.

Sam Knipp (Kuh-NIP') with the Oklahoma Farm Bureau says it will

be several days before wheat growers know if the cold temperatures

damaged their crops.

Fairview wheat grower Scott Neufeld says his crop could suffer a

setback if the temperature dips into the mid-20s overnight, but he

added that his crop already has been damaged by an April freeze and

by a lingering drought.
