Kansas Wheat-

how long before y'all can tell if there was any damage done from Mon-Tues cold?

 

saw a low temp gradient map for 4/15 ---some areas central-western dipped into the teens...can anyone confirm that?

 

thanks.

My thermometer was showing 22 for an over night low.  It'll take a few days for the damage to show up, but I don't know exactly how long.

Re: Kansas Wheat-

i know "technically speaking" that if it's not jointing - shouldn't be too bad...and maybe it's too dry to matter anyway.....you know i laugh WITH you -- the way yours kept bouncing back after all the freezes last spring???--you have made lite of that.

 

maybe some COLD gene mutations occured after last year to make it more resistant......life is hearty like that!!!

Well the weather may be able to take my crops from me, but my sense of humor is all mine and is here to stay.

Hey M-Farmer, cheer up you're a farmer.  If it were easy they'd call it "growing" not "farming".

Re: Kansas Wheat-

Don't have a lot, but what I do have is all mine.  Instead of looking for additional acres, why not make your existing acres more productive.  As soon as all my acres are as productive as possible, then I'll look at expanding my land base.
