To say this year that growing wheat was a challenge is an understatement. Rains have plagued this crop since planting last fall, and continue to plague it to this day. Because of the rains, planting for some was delayed until late October or early November and the rain and cool weather have delayed harvest by more than two weeks from normal. Actually, as I am writing this, combines are still not in the field. This may make it difficult for producers to enter the Market Wheat Show at the Barton County Fair this year, but not impossible.
