[b]Winter Wheat Harvest Starts[/b]

Winter wheat harvest started around the county this week. A number of custom harvesters started arriving in Presho area over the weekend.

Farmers Union Coop Elevator manager Stan Collins reports wheat coming into the Kennebec elevator is averaging between 57 - 61 pounds per bushel. Protein has been low, about 10% with some samples reaching about 11 %. Yield reports have been from 40 to 55 bushels per acre, added Collins. Collins expects the speed of harvest to pick up after the last few days of hot dry weather.
Early reports circulating the area had some farmers concerned that scab (fusarium head blight) could be a problem due to the wet humid conditions the winter wheat experienced during the flowering stage. If scab is a problem the level of mycotoxin could cause problems with marketing the wheat. Collins reports that early testing done by the elevator had shown only trace amounts, We are checking for scab and the level of mycotoxin in the wheat, so far it hasnt been a problem, stated Collins.

Dennis Scott of Dakota Mill & Grain of Presho stated that harvest was just starting to take off Tuesday. That little rain shower Monday morning didnt allow much cutting, stated Scott. While the rain averaged just 10 to 25 hundreds around the Presho and Vivian areas it did have an affect on the amount of moisture in the air.

Wheat coming into the Presho elevator is making anywhere from 30 to 60 bushels per acre. Protein isnt good, most is right around that 10 to 11 percent area, added Scott. Scott is also testing for scab but as of Tuesday hadnt seen any large amounts.
