Waiting on Green Wheat
Tue, 29 Jul 2014
Custom harvester Myron Eberts got to Martin, South Dakota Monday. He says they’re waiting on some green wheat. “We sampled a little Sunday night and we were running into 14 percent moisture. Some of the best didn’t come up the best because it was so wet.” Eberts, who is from South Heart, North Dakota, says yields for what they cut in Nebraska were all over the board. “We came here from the North Platte area where we saw anywhere from 20 to 80 bushels per acre. There was better, irrigated wheat that guys were cutting that was up over 100. There was a fair amount of hail. Test weights have been up in the 60’s. They don’t really check protein down there.”

"Get very familiar with your sprayer," said Hanson, "It's not just rinsing and cleaning, it is doing a full colonoscopy, so to speak, so you're very confident that when you get to the next crop there won't be any issues with anything.” It may be easy to rinse the tank, but Hanson says everything behind the tank needs extra scrutiny.
