Wheat ‘surprisingly good’



June 27, 2014 - 12:00 AM

Brian Regehr finished combining 80 acres of wheat north of Iola a couple of days ago and noted it made better than 50 bushels an acre.

While that isn’t at the top rung of yields this season, it’s nothing to sneeze at.

The field, on a parcel of rocky upland, usually produces good wheat, Regehr continued. Wheat isn’t fond of a lot of moisture, and with its growing season early in the year before Kansas’ famed hot summer weather sets in, it can get by on shallower topsoil than can corn or soybeans.
