Tough Year Ahead for Great Plains Wheat Farmers

Wheat field, under a big, blue, Kansas sky.

It was a very good year for growing wheat. But that means it’s also a very bad year for selling the crop across the Great Plains. There’s already a glut of wheat on the market, and prices have hit 13-year lows. In this report for Harvest Public Media, Bryan Thompson tells us what's in store for the farm economy.

Bryan Thompson is a reporter for the KHI News Service and a contributor to Heartland Health Monitor and Harvest Public Media, two of our reporting collaborations here at Kansas Public Radio.
