The 2022 Wheat Harvest below average
June 22, 2022
The experts predicted that the 2022 hard red winter wheat harvest would be down at least 21 percent. They were correct. Wheat harvest is winding down in the Newsgram reading area. A check with area elevator operators proved the prediction to be accurate. The biggest culprit was drought.
The good news is the price of wheat hit record highs this spring. That's due in part to all the unrest in the world, including the Russian invasion of Ukraine. And also with inflation everything costs more. Friday the price of wheat closed at $10.44/bushel.
