Sorry Wheat


I have a picture file called Sorry Wheat from a few years ago where I had difficulty deciding whether to keep a field of wheat or plant a new crop. This year we never had a chance to remove the sorry wheat and plant a new crop so we are harvesting sorry wheat.

On the bright side, it is amazing what it is making with a year's rainfall on it since planting, and more. Still, the best I have heard is 60 bushels around here and there are 20's. I don't have the weigh tickets yet but I know I have both. 20 isn't worth combining to me here and would have rather had it full of young beans or corn right now.

Also my quality is amazingly good for the conditions. I don't have the verdict on that yet either from the buyer but it is dry and the kernals are in good condition out of the combine. It tastes good and no musty smell or taste to it so it will make good feed or crackers or cookies.

Still, it's pretty sorry in today's economy. It won't pay many bills and that puts the income responsibility on the double crop soybeans with not much growing season left. But who knows, it could still come out a winner but I have my doubts on that.

I will report on the John Deere 9770 STS combine. It's a lot smoother to operate than the Gleaner, unloads 3 times faster but cuts no better. The AGCO cab is roomier and nicer. The electronics are better after 7 years of improvements if they would work and you knew how to adjust and use them.

I did notice the fire extinguishers mounted in obvious places on the machine to reflect all of the John Deere combine fires so many farmers talk about. I am sure the insurance premium reflect those fires too but I haven't investigated that yet.

I will add some more after I take these loads to the miller.

  1. First load was 13.8% moinsture, amazing 59.7 test weight, the best they had and .9% damage but I did see some as low as .2%. PPM Vomitoxin quick test revealed 1.2 PPM, they reject at 4 PPM and one load had failed so far they told me. Most were running 1-2 PPM.

  4. Each listing includes the skills taught and the suggested age for the
    activity. A look into some of the best Star Wars apps to be
    found on i - Tunes, including games, fun soundboards, books, and more.
    You'll have to keep the phone close (on the bed or in an armband) for the app to work.

  5. These five free basketball game apps for the i - Phone will surely help
    you get your game on. Each program will have a box with a checkmark,
    find the programs you'd like to uninstall and uncheck that box. The player guides Phen through 10 levels of dungeon gameplay, finding a whole host of weapons and other items as well.

  7. The particular electronic cigarette ego basic starter kit
    is fantastic for new users. Continually letting a battery drain will make it
    die much faster then it normally would. While the
    older 17 inch Mac - Book Pros lack the benefits of the unibody design, they do have the
    added feature of user-replaceable batteries.

  8. Then a splash screen that is not present on the purchased version "nags"
    for several seconds, and the background from the desktop is displayed on the
    laptop. If you look around your community,
    our country, and the world, there is little evidence of loving actions.
