Winter Wheat 2012-2013

Organic farm report: I have approximately 100 acres of winter wheat planted in Perkins County, Nebraska. This photo shows the state of the crop on December 23, 2012. When I first walked the field I could not see the wheat shoots anywhere and then I noticed the thread like leaves you might discover in this photo. Overall, there were not many shoots. Hopefully there will be enough moisture this winter and in the spring to permit a successful harvest of this dryland crop. On the photo horizon the sandy band is the southern edge of the sandhills.

So we going to get any bread next year, or is the drought going to wilt those little leaves?
