U.S. Custom Harvesters Vice President J.C. Schemper moved his harvest crew from Frederick to the Enid, Oklahoma area last week. “Farmers were surprised with the wheat yield near Frederick. The crop had up to 78 bushels, excellent yield and then also, the poorer sandier ground that didn’t turn out as good as we’d thought.” Schemper is expecting another decent crop in the Enid area. “We are expecting anything from 40 to 60 bushels per acre. Harvest is moving so quickly. I’ve got friends who have started harvesting in south Kansas. There’s three stops to get in before we blink an eye.”
