Assessment of damage to wheat fields ongoing

ENID, Okla. (AP)--State wheat officials say they're still assessing the damage to wheat fields--but the outlook isn't good.

Oklahoma Wheat Commission director Mike Schulte says southwestern Oklahoma is hardest hit because of drought followed by freezing temperatures. He says some farmers have abandoned their fields.

Schulte says some northern Oklahoma wheat fields were damaged by freezing temperatures and hail but others are in good condition.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture reports 70 percent of the Oklahoma wheat crop is in poor or very poor condition, 22 percent is rated fair and 8 percent is considered good.

The Oklahoma Grain and Feed Association will meet May 6, in Oklahoma City, to compare damage estimates from across the state.
