Roland harvesters play the waiting game

Tuesday, June 28

We ran into some green wheat at the beginning of this weekend and unfortunately we're still waiting on some of it to turn. Most of the fields are ripe but there are a fair amount of green kernels still scattered throughout the fields. We tried to patch out the field to mix the grain but the moisture was too high to continue cutting. Yesterday morning it was cloudy and extremely humid all day so we fueled up everything and worked on some general maintenance. Waiting is always a tough for any harvester to deal with but we're hoping to get started up again today.

This is a perfect sample of what our wheat fields are made up of at the moment. On the left is a ripe head of wheat and on the right is a green head of wheat.
