Southeast Nebraska farmer and Nebraska Director of Agriculture Steve Wellman says he’s wrapped up winter wheat harvest. “It was ok. It was above average I would say, but it could have been better. I think we missed out on having any moisture to speak of over the wintertime. That certainly would’ve helped our wheat production.”
He tells Brownfield his yields averaged 65 bushels-per-acre. “It’s below what we would like to have. It’s probably about average for recent years.
