THE 2012 WHEAT HARVEST COULD START VERY EARLY, POSSIBLY THE END OF MAY OR FIRST PART OF JUNE. THE WHEAT IS ALREADY HEADED OUT, WHICH IS 2-3 WEEKS AHEAD OF SCHEDULE. THE BOOT STAGE BEGAN ABOUT 10 DAYS AGO AND BOOT STAGE TO HARVEST, USUALLY TAKES ABOUT 6 WEEKS. THERE OF COURSE IS STILL THE POSSIBILITY OF DAMGE TO THE WHEAT, EITHER FROM A FROST OR FREEZE OR WIND AND HAIL. IF MOTHER NATURE CAN BE KEPT UNDER CONTROL, THIS YEAR’S WHEAT HARVEST COULD BE A HISTORY MAKER.
