Wheat harvest productive
June 25, 2003
What looks to be a bumper Douglas County wheat harvest stalled out with Monday’s inch-plus rain, but there aren’t many complaints because that’s just what farmers needed for the money crops — corn and soybeans. Charles Jehle, who farms 400 acres near Worden, brought in the first load of wheat to the Baldwin Feed Co. elevator last Tuesday. That brought a flurry of wheat flowing into the grain bins that was averaging around 70 bushels an acre, well above the 42-bushel average for the last six years. Rains around Vinland Thursday and Sunday, and a county-wide downpour Monday morning put the brakes on activity at the elevator. “The rain kind of put a halt to it right now,” Baldwin Feed’s Verlyn Gilges said Tuesday morning of the wheat harvest. “The rains always tend to lower the test weights, so we’ll have to see what happens. But, the wheat is above average this year for sure.”
