Cool summer weather means fall harvest is behind normal

By Larry Dreiling

Cooler than normal temperatures during the growing season has resulted in slower than normal crop development. What that means to fall harvest is the possibility of some crop losses as normal freeze days occur.

In addition, many areas experienced delayed planting and replanting issues during the wet spring, resulting in later than normal crop maturity, according to Dr. Mary Knapp, associate professor of agronomy and state climatologist, at Kansas State University.

"The final factor in this slower growing season was an increased number of double cropped acres all over the region, which also resulted in later maturing crops," Knapp said.

"The potential for losses here, with a crop that's behind and a normal freeze date, is pretty great," Knapp said. "There are a lot of acres that are vulnerable. Even northwest Kansas, which had a lot of trouble getting their corn crop in the ground, with early rains and hail, has problems now because it wasn't late enough for them to try another crop because of crop insurance regulations."
