Wheat acreage declines across state
Mississippi’s small wheat crop was nearly harvested by the second week of June, and farmers brought in lower-than-average yields.
Erick Larson, grain crops agronomist with the Mississippi State University Extension Service, said individual wheat fields varied greatly in bushels produced.
“The state’s yield should average about 50 bushels an acre, which is a little lower than average, but some producers may harvest yields as high as 80 bushels or more an acre,” Larson said.
