No way Kansas wheat doesn't get pounded today ...

.... with the forecast of 99* and wind. The damage will be the end of some and permanent damage to more and still no quick relief. It will be interesting if we see any more reports out of Chicago that rain  now will result in increased potential.

Didn't have much wind today, but tomorrow may be a different story. I'd imagine by next week we might start to see some zeroing out of the 2014 wheat crop.

I know this is not Kansas and I know Ontario is just a small part of the wheat growing area but this picture shows what a differance 10 days at planting made.

A rain stopped these people and 10 days later planted on the left side.

Soft red winter wheat.

Even good fields in Ontario have poor spots.

Some are saying 30-40% will get treated with roundup and our planted area was smaller last year because of we weather.

 

So this is just to say there are other problems with other types of wheat too.

This is a different field and would be considered a good field this year in this area.

Note the many bare or thin spots

SCKS didn't have too much wind today, but the temps were pretty high.  Kinda a dry heat locally.  In other news: the wheat by the house (I hand-planted 10 sq ft about 10 feet from the door) is in Z50 / F10.1 .

Central Kansas, the wheat I planted with the no-till drill is in the FUBAR 101 stage.
