Keeping our fingers crossed here in Central Kansas, but honestly, how many lives does this HRW going to get before it lays down?

Re: Here we go again....freeze in wheat country

Who knows. But west prairies and mn have snow. Wow!! I have none here in Ontario. I get to run 2011 here again.

Wheats gonna break out, or the basis is going to ramp up at my end user. a flood on the prairies and north USA would do it. Not like anyone has planted spring wheat yet

Manual pinpoint forecast for rush center
Is 24 tonight. For some reason Dodge
City didn't put out a warning, but if you
Look at the raw data, they should have.
perhaps more worrysome is in Okla they
have some hard freeze warning.

Re: Here we go again....freeze in wheat country

Looks like we dipped as low as 26F here in Central Kansas, bad enough, but not as bad as it could have been. Kind of funny what a difference a couple degrees can make. My agronomist said we should be able to withstand temps. as low as 24F again for a few hours, we went as low as 26F so hopefully we'll be ok again. Just saw the 7 day forecast and they're calling for freezing temps again next week, not a hard freeze but a freeze non the less. Ole man winter just will not relinquish his grasp this year.

Re: Here we go again....freeze in wheat country

Is there a lot of damage in wheat country and when will it show up?

We'll need to wait and see DKIL. Still a little early to make a final judgement.

Re: Here we go again....freeze in wheat country

Shaggy, you mention your agronomist.

We know that wheat can be damaged if temps too low for too long.

Wheat is also known to like cooler weather rather than tooo hot.

 

So have you any imdication if these almost too much frost temps will have some impact on yield even if damage is not visisble.

What I am wondering is if there is a, small maybe, yield drag from these cold days and nights?
