  It would be nice if the wheat tour folks could tell the difference between cheatgrass and wheat.

  Yes Nebraska you are correct. I think they just spout all this BS to get the prices lower than they already are. I had 50% winter kill this past winter. No bumper crop here in Eastern KS

  I'll believe it when I see it! There will be pockets of great wheat just like every year, but there will also be a lot of wheat damaged from frost, hail and disease again this year.
