Oklahoma custom harvester Greg Thurman has been cutting wheat near Vernon, Texas. Thurman says acres and yields are lower. “We’re cutting probably one-third of the acres we normally do. I guess we’re cutting about one-third of the crop too, because it’s pretty poor.” Thurman adds the crop is anywhere from 12 to 20 bushels per acre. The Vernon area was extremely dry this spring. “They just couldn’t get a rain. The alfalfa was poor down here as well.”
