Recent rains in Kansas will cause some Hessian fly adults to begin emerging from the oversummering flaxseed. Summer survival of the Hessian fly is usually enhanced under no-till or reduced-till systems.
Drought is the most important constraint limiting wheat yields in the U.S. Southern High Plains, and the past four years of exceptional drought have provided a tremendous opportunity for research and genetic improvements.
Washington State University researchers have found “the most famous wheat gene,” a reproductive traffic cop of sorts that can be used to transfer valuable genes from other plants to wheat.

Morning Comments 09/17
Bearish global conditions are depressing the wheat markets. Wheat futures couldn’t sustain their initial bullish reaction to Tuesday’s FSA acreage data and ended the day poorly. News that U.S. wheat was shut out of an Egyptian tender added to the pessimistic environment. News that Japan got no offers for an overnight tender seemed to do little to support prices. December CBOT wheat skidded 1.5 cents to $4.9475/bushel Tuesday night, while December KC wheat dipped 2.5 cents to $5.8075/bushel, and December MWE wheat edged 1.75 lower to $5.6375.
