My crop consultant scouted my winter wheat acres today and is already reporting drought stress. He reported that is wasn't at a extreme level yet, but none the less it is present. I am located smack dab right in the center of the wheat belt, I would venture to say our grain situation is only beginning. If we don't receive moisture and receive it soon, I'm afraid winter kill will be an issue come next spring. Stands are good at this point, but not a single day of rain in the forecast as far out as the 3rd week of November.
