Winter Wheat Harvest Coming to a Close
USDA’S National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) reports that Winter Wheat harvest is near completion across the state. Few pockets in higher elevations are still harvesting. Several reports in North Idaho indicate rain and humidly are slowing cereal grain harvest. Franklin and Caribou county extensions reported frost which may have damaged wheat. NASS reports Winter wheat planting is 9 percent complete at the state level.
