The Wheat Crop
As you know the exceptionally dry fall and winter has resulted in poor germination of wheat across the state (Fig 1; Photo credit: Dr. Esten Mason). We are especially concerned about our research sites in Orchard, New Raymer and Akron, but we intend to continue with our projects while praying for rain!
