Local wheat harvest
local picture
A farmer combines wheat in a field along Siegrist-Jutte Road in rural Coldwater Monday afternoon. A cool May helped the state's crop this year and farmers can expect strong yields and high quality information from the OSU Extension states. Mercer County farmers are reporting yields ranging from 60 to 100 bushels per acre, said Chris Gibbs of the Mercer County Farm Service Agency. The average county yield is 70 to 73 bushels per acre. The first of the county's wheat started coming off the last weekend of June and the harvest began in earnest Monday, Gibbs said. Monday's weather was near perfect for outside work with sunny skies and a high temperature of 82. Today's forecast should be a near repeat of Monday, said local weather forecaster Dennis Howick.
