by James Jordan, Sumner Newscow — There’s finally some good news for 2020. The wheat harvest is getting started in Sumner County and it looks good so far.

Obviously, the Coronavirus did not affect the wheat and the weather cooperated, and that should make for a good crop this year.

Sumner County Extension Agent Randy Hein said the weather provided a good fill period, and it seems dry enough for farmers to get in the fields and begin harvesting. Some have already started in the Caldwell area, as well as Wellington. There are some areas of the county that still have some maturing to do.

The extension service cut a plot they had planted for research, it looked good. Hein said he did not have any data yet, but what he saw looked good.
