According to Minnesota Wheat Executive Director Charlie Vogel, spring wheat harvest is underway in southern Minnesota. “One grower just starting harvest told me the yields are above average and the crop is good quality. There’s a 15.1 percent protein with decent results for test weight,” said Vogel. “Overall, I think the USDA projections on the crop are optimistic. Mostly due to the excessive rains in northwest Minnesota and excessive drown-outs.”
