Wheat crops are looking pretty decent, according to field reports from Virtual Wheat Tour scouts.
Jay Warner, McPherson, Kan.
My wheat is looking fairly good, especially considering how poor the conditions were when I mudded it in. Most of it tillered and had good roots when it went into dormancy.

All of the wheat in our area got planted. Ours was a little later than we'd like due to wet weather, but we got it all in. The crop is looking good. It is still small, but I am very optimistic because of all the moisture we have.
Mike Miller, Wilbur, Wash.
There were some untimely rains at seeding time, and some was reseeded. It is looking very good right now. We have had recent and unseasonal warm temps so the grassy weeds should start to show.
Kyle Grimsrud, Lewistown, Mont.
I'm very skeptical that our winter wheat is going to come through the winter unscathed. The late seeding and the 20 below weather we had in January may have gotten some of it. However, the old timers around here always claim that a third of a stand of winter wheat is better than seeding spring wheat, and in my experience I think that is true most of the time.
