My guess is they went from the Kansas Missouri border west on hwy 36 to Smith Center Kansas and then did a 180° turn and went right back the same road home.

Oops not any more....had some hail
and really good wind, 80 MPH.
saw some bent corn and the wind kind
Of ripped/split the corn leaf. So they will
Need to turn around at Washington and
Go back east.

I must say tho, the wheat is going to
Do better that I thought a while back,
But by only 10 or 15 % more, I think
20 to 25 will get most in the better
areas.
The key was moisture management. Best
I've seen was summer fallowed

But national hrrw average in the 40's

Something is just plain wrong.

BUT maybe after all the acres totaled out
Or insurance claims made, maybe those
Few acres left, maybe they will do
that? ???
