Anticipated large harvests of corn, grain sorghum, soybeans and other crops this fall are likely to further clog the state’s grain storage and handling systems, according to Kansas State University associate professor Dan O’Brien. One apparent result of the tight grain storage situation is that the Chicago Mercantile Exchange July Kansas hard red winter wheat futures contract did not converge with the Plains Grains August 12 Harvest Summary For Hard Red Winter Wheat Mon, 15 Aug 2016 10:49:18 EDT http://www.seedtoday.com/articles/Plains_Grains_August_12_Harvest_Summary_For_Hard_Red_Winter_Wheat-160782.html http://www.seedtoday.com/articles/Plains_Grains_August_12_Harvest_Summary_For_Hard_Red_Winter_Wheat-160782.html This harvest crop summary update for Hard Red Winter (HRW) represents data as of August 12 and was compiled and supplied by Mark Hodges, executive director, Plains Grains, Inc.
