Oklahoma’s wheat crop will be smaller this year as producers planted fewer acres of the grain again last fall, reports the Enid News & Eagle.

According to U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS), state farmers planted 4.2 million acres of wheat for harvest this year. That’s down 5% from the 4.4 million acres the previous year.

The number of state acres has fallen each year from 5.3 million acres planted in 2014 for harvest in 2015 to the 4.2 million acres planted for this year’s crop.

NASS rates 46% of Oklahoma’s canola crop in good condition, with 4% in excellent shape. Another 36% is rated fair.
