Producers in Emmons County are bringing in a lot of bushels this year.
Emmons County Extension Agent Kelcey Holm says while it's not a bumper year, this year's wheat is high in both yield and quality.
Holm says the wheat in the county is running between 25 and 60 bushels an acre.
She says the rain has been very "hit and miss this year" with the southern 1/2 of the county being much drier than the north.
(Kelcey Holm / Emmons Co. Extension Agent) "This harvest is in full swing, it's a lot earlier than the past few years have ben. Wheat is looking really good, for moisture we are doing ok, but we could definitely use a good shot of rain to hold a lot of that over. We are just getting that little moisture that is just holding them through."
Holm also says many of the pastures are starting to get brown and the grasshoppers have been very bad this year.
