S.C. wheat crop looks good despite, weather, markets

July 5, 2013

This year’s weather has been especially capricious with South Carolina’s wheat crop. “The cool, wet weather delayed the crop at just about every stage, from planting all the way to harvest,” said Trish DeHond, a Clemson Extension agronomy agent who works in Chesterfield, Darlington, Dillon, and Marlboro counties. The most recent crop report from the National Agricultural Statistics Service rated nearly three-quarters of the South Carolina wheat crop as good or excellent. About one-quarter of the crop remains in the field – significantly behind schedule for most years.
