Has anyone started harvesting your wheat yet? Post your yields and quality here.

We are likely a week away from getting started.

Walked through the wheat yesterday, it looked pretty good.

I hear some guys are worrying about sprouting.

Good luck.

Struggling to get the last 10% off here. Yields have been okay, test weights generally a bit light. Fusarium has been acceptable on everything that's been sprayed and probably 80-90 percent of the unsprayed has been downgraded....just don't get why guys refuse to look after their crops.
