Late wheat harvest may pose future issues

Hunter Funk, KSN news TV, interviews Vance about the 2018 wheat harvest.


Late wheat harvest may pose future issues wheat harvest in southwest Kansas is slowly wrapping up, but has left farmers worried about tackling more weather issues down the road.

Vance Ehmke, a farmer from Lane County said that the harvest season has been unusual and difficult to balance.

“We’re running as fast as we can to keep up,” he said.

After many farmers have said that their harvest has delayed this year, they are rushing to get it finished, so they can finally start on the next crop.
“It has really compressed the workload and a lot of things have been slow to get done,” he said.
According to Ehmke, he has been wrapping up his wheat harvest and is nervous that future weather conditions will pose a threat to the fields that have been planted late.
