Montana Begins Winter Wheat Harvest

Despite a neverending winter that delayed farmers from planting for weeks, winter wheat has arrived, reports the Missoula Current

Raymond Staples of Havre, MT, is on his fourth day of harvesting winter wheat for Dry Fork Farms.

Yes, it’s a little early, but it’s good and ready, he said. The winter wheat yield, Staples said, is between 50 and 55 bushels an acre.

Montanans planted 1.6 million acres of winter wheat this season.
