Worst rating for Nebraska’s wheat since ’90

Only 17 percent of Nebraska’s winter wheat crop qualifies for a “good” rating this week.

Forty-three percent of the crop is rated fair, with 40 percent called poor to very poor.  Those are the poorest mid-November ratings for the crop since 1990.

Most of Nebraska continues in extreme drought with soil moisture profiles depleted.   During the past 60 days, the western two-thirds of the state has received less than one inch of precipitation.  That’s where most of the state’s wheat is grown.
