Wheat Needs Another Rain

The wheat across Texas continues to do very well. But Steelee Fischbacher of Texas Wheat Producers says a few more good rains would help.

"A lot of the areas without decent subsoil moisture, which is a great big area of the Texas panhandle, is drying out pretty quick," Fischbacher said. "So they're looking at the next two weeks as a critical time point to get some more moisture."

Along with that, Fischbacher says wheat farmers need to be on the lookout for aphids.

Personal Information Submitted to Water District

If you’re a farmer with a water well, you’ve probably given some of your personal information to a water district. Kody Bessent with the High Plains Water District tells KGNC that a bill currently moving through the Texas Legislature offers stronger protection of your information.

"This extends the opportunity of the owner or operator of an individual well wanting to maintain privacy of their information when it's submitted to a groundwater conservation district and they would have the opportunity to do so and we're very supportive of that," Bessent said.

USDA Extends Farm Bill Deadlines...Again!

That’s right. If you have not made your PLC/ARC decision or updated your base acres and yields, you now have more time.
