I was just wondering how much wheat is being planted in other areas of the country.Here in central Ga guys have went "wheat crazy" planting fencerow to fencerow ditch to ditch.Keep in mind that a "big" field here is maybe 60 acres,I was kinda adding up in my head this morning and there is easliy 3000 acres planted within 20 miles of me and they are still going!There are 10 and 15 acre fields being planted that have been laying out for several years because they werent worth the trouble to the big time operators until this year.If it is like this all across the country I am mighty afraid that people that dont have it contracted come harvest time may be looking at low prices.On the upside,I could easily take in 2000 acres to cut and it looks like the third 642 will get a lot of my attention this winter to get it ready to roll come May.

Thanks for the responses guys,it sounds like we may be the luckier ones this year on wheat.A lot of wheat was planted here in dry dirt but we got 3/4" two weeks ago and that got most of it up.My biggest concern is that even 4' down there is NO subsoil moisture and if we dont get more rain the wheat will probably stop growing.I planted a 4 acre test plot a month ago to use to test the combines before starting next year and I actually watered it with a traveler(put on over 1"on before I planted it to get the subsoil moisture up.

In my part of the world we've been planting every corner of every field for decades now, if it can be farmed it already was/is. It's fun to watch the fellas with 16 row planters work on 2 acre fields....

Corn is king, probably 2/3 to 3/4 corn around here, my neighbor didn't plant any beans this year, all corn and alfalfa (he milks).

Soybeans are used for rotation by most.

A tiny bit of alfalfa, spring wheat, and oats is planted, but very small amounts.

I worked up an extra 1/2 acre this fall, neighbor did some tiling and that should keep it from getting his water dumped on my land. If it looks good this spring, I can work an aditional 3/4 acre in spring. Going to more corn, of course. :)

I plan on planting all my tillable ground this spring in wheat. Will hopefully get enough to provide a fair profit and pay the expenses for the farm. Tillable area is only 30 acres of a 60 acre farm.

I am in northern Okla wheat country. It has been very, very dry here. I am wondering if there will be any wheat to cut here if this drought continues. I replanted some and it its sprouting though it is begining to wilt. There may not be a large supply if things do not change.

Here in Iowa the farmers are telling me that the government is paying them to plant overwintering crops such as wheat, rye and radishes. Most of it is burned down in the spring to plant corn or beans. There is some interest in planting wheat to double crop beans but this year those beans made 17 bpa which they said was their breakeven for even putting them in.

Cousin quit growing wheat about 10 years ago in Indiana (typically same size fields as Georgia) it was under $3 and we only grew it for the straw. However, the last couple of years that he planted wheat it lost considerable money. Now at $8 plus it would probably be a profitable crop. I see a lot of it planted after cotton in the Memphis area.

In NW Kansas where I grew up, it's so dry the wheat hasn't even sprouted so I don't think there will be that big of a crop in the number one wheat producing State.
