The Wheat Quality Council Hard Wheat Tour wrapped up in Manhattan, Kansas on Thursday. Wheat Quality Council Executive Director Dave Green says the estimated production for the state is in-line with other estimates at 306.5 million bushels. “If you divide that by our average yield guess of 47.2 bushels/acre, that gives you about 6.5 million acres, which would be normal abandonment,” he says. “The averages guesses are in-line with what you would have looked at just by the data.” Green says the majority of the crop is late, but in very good condition.
