Nebraska-based custom harvester J.C. Schemper is working in Montana after harvesting in Kansas and Nebraska. “We had a stop in Scott City, Kansas with some irrigated and dry land wheat. Yields ranged from 15 bushels per acre to 97 bushels per acre. It was a good crop, given the drought conditions.” Schemper saw a lot of disease and insect pressure in Nebraska. “At Oshkosh, Nebraska, they had everything from hail, sawfly to mosaic virus; one field only yielded 18 bushels per acre.”
