A northern Illinois farmer says the wheat crop looks as good as he’s ever seen.

Mark Tuttle, who’s based in Dekalb County, says he’s excited about the upcoming harvest.

“It’s a couple weeks early and it’s starting to get a little yellow tint to it.”  He says, “So maybe by the 4th of July, we’ll be cutting wheat up here in northern Illinois. And from everything I’ve seen, it really looks really, really good up here.”

He tells Brownfield an early wheat harvest could provide more opportunities for farmers.
