Elk City, Oklahoma custom combiner David Misener says the harvest window is later than usual due to the late planting last fall. “It’s the norm this year. It’s not two to three days later than normal, it seems like it’s been one week plus later than normal for harvest,” says Misener. “Sometimes, it’s been two weeks later than normal.” Misener says harvesting wheat gets to be a challenge once the days start getting shorter. “It’s a challenge after August 25. If we can do more around August 15 or 20, we can get more done, but you can’t push Mother Nature.”
