Wheat producers in Kansas are worried about the potential for freeze damage after temperatures stayed below freezing for much of the weekend.

While it’s not unusual for Kansas to see spring freezes, the frigid temperatures and blowing wind over the weekend likely caused some damage to the state’s wheat crop.

“I think this year we’re really putting the crop to the test,” said Romulo Lollato, wheat specialist at Kansas State University.
