The Wheat Quality Council will have an in-person 2021 Hard Winter Wheat Tour this week. Starting tomorrow, 45 agribusiness professionals will travel across Kansas evaluating winter wheat fields. Wheat Quality Council Executive Vice-President Dave Green says the tour begins in Manhattan. “We have routes going up into Nebraska and central Kansas the first day, but the majority spiderweb to Colby, Kansas. On Wednesday, we’ll head toward Wichita and also hear about Oklahoma’s conditions. On Thursday, we’ll wrap up.” Green expects to see a variety of wheat conditions. “A variety is good for crop scouts, because we can show people great wheat fields, freeze and disease damage. Southwest Kansas is still dry, but the big unknown is the rain in the forecast this week. That will go a long way to finish the crop.”
