In 2019 more wheat is going into the ground. Acres assessment statewide has been down for over a three to five year period. Last year’s hurricanes kept fields wet until wheat planting was over. Many wheat acres are used as cover and hay. Wheat for hay crop is not a bad investment due to hay shortages already from the 2019 dry summer. Most of the acres will be planted as grain. We need the wheat crop due to being a grain short state; the more grain the more opportunity to make up the shortage. Wheat acres have been way down from last year but are on the rise this year which is a good sign. Wheat needs to be looked at as like any other crop – a high management crop that if done well can be profitable and money in the pocket in the summer.
