Oklahoma and Texas Wheat Crops Down

Drought, a late freeze and an abnormal amount of rain has put a huge damper on winter wheat crops in Oklahoma and Texas. The small crop has put a huge damper on sales and revenue for these farmers.
Dave Hermesch has been a wheat farmer for 22 years and although it is only June, he has already felt the negative impact of the small crops.
Hermesch told NewsOK.com that “We’re cutting 20 percent of what we normally would and less than five percent of the crop will see combines.”
He said that a normal year would see 10,000 acres of wheat, but this year there will be only 3,000 acres.
Despite problems, Hermesch feels he is lucky because he at least has enough acres he can cut to stay busy because many farmers have no acres of wheat left at all.
Although some areas were hit hard, agriculture is still on the rise and now is the time to join the industry. Farm Plus Financial has many low-rate loans to help you with your farming needs.
