Winter wheat harvesting is continuing across the state with some reports from the south central area of the state having around 80-100 bu/A with test weights of around 60-63 lbs/bu and good proteins. Low DON amounts (below 1 ppm) have also been reported. Spring wheat harvest will be starting soon if not already started in some areas of the state.
