Winter wheat planting plummets

The Door Peninsula is planting less winter wheat keeping in line with trends across the country. The number of acres dedicated to winter wheat in the US has fallen to the lowest level since 1909. There are a number of factors for the decrease including better yields, low prices, changes in diet, and more. In the area though, Kewaunee County Agricultural Agent Aerica Bjurstrom says rain is the main culprit.

 


Bjurstrom warns that the inability of farmers to get cover crops down this fall will lead to significant topsoil erosion through wintertime.
