How To Protect Stored Grain From Insects


This week’s USDA Crop Progress Report reveals that this year’s U.S. winter wheat harvest is running slightly behind on a national level and to some extent in this region too.

The USDA reports that 72{e7e4ba4d9a3c939171d79cae1e3a0df1d41e5a91c3c4158fbb92284b490bc9d3} of South Dakota’s winter wheat is now harvested compared to last week’s 29{e7e4ba4d9a3c939171d79cae1e3a0df1d41e5a91c3c4158fbb92284b490bc9d3}. Thirty-five percent of Wyoming’s winter wheat has now been harvested, up from last week’s 1{e7e4ba4d9a3c939171d79cae1e3a0df1d41e5a91c3c4158fbb92284b490bc9d3} while just 2{e7e4ba4d9a3c939171d79cae1e3a0df1d41e5a91c3c4158fbb92284b490bc9d3} of Montana’s winter wheat has seen the combine.
