Western Kansas farmer David Schemm says timely rains have created near ideal planting conditions for his winter wheat crop. “We were a little cautious. Some of the area farmers started a little early this year, but we were cautious because of getting it into early and getting too much fall growth, be more subject to warmer temperatures, dryness and various things like that.”
He tells Brownfield it was almost too dry to plant the crop before the moisture, and might have missed the window to get it in.
