Grand Forks, North Dakota custom combiner Kent Braathen is cutting wheat in the Kiowa, Kansas area. Braathen calls the crop below-average. “It’s in the upper 20 to 30 bushel range. The wheat took a beating from the drought. Then, they got too much rain in May and had the freeze in April.” says Braathen. ” There’s a lot of wheat in this area of that’s probably 15 to 20 bushel. Also, a lot of it that isn’t being harvested and already put up for hay.”
