When flies started showing up in October and into January, Mike Smith and his team of scientists including Jeff Whitworth, Dr. Holly Schwarting and Dr. Ming Chen, started to investigate 2016 Kansas Wheat Harvest Reports: Day 21 Tue, 19 Jul 2016 08:20:28 EDT http://www.seedtoday.com/articles/2016_Kansas_Wheat_Harvest_Reports__Day_21-160180.html http://www.seedtoday.com/articles/2016_Kansas_Wheat_Harvest_Reports__Day_21-160180.html This is day 21 and the final Kansas Wheat Harvest Report, brought to you by the Kansas Wheat Commission, Kansas Association of Wheat Growers and the Kansas Grain and Feed Association.
