A wheat field east of Wright, Kansas, is an example of what some farmers in the High Plains are facing this fall. Rains and snow settled in the low point here, creating a lake and drowning out the wheat crop. Experts calling into the Wheatinar Nov. 16 said fall precipitation events have delayed harvest in areas, further delaying wheat acres getting planted. (Journal photo by Jennifer M. Latzke.)

Sometimes there can be such a thing as too much of a good thing.

Such is the case with the fall precipitation events that have delayed harvest across much of the Plains and consequently delayed winter wheat planting.
