South Dakota Wheat
June 18 (Bloomberg) -- Wheat rose in Chicago on signs rains are delaying the winter-crop harvest in the U.S., the world’s largest exporter of the grain.
About 11 percent of the winter-wheat crop was collected by June 16, behind last year’s 51 percent pace and the five-year average of 25 percent, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said yesterday.
One of the earliest Kansas wheat harvests in history officially began May 22 near the town of Kiowa in Barber County, where the OK Coop took in 35 truckloads of wheat. Each year, Kiowa, is the starting point for the annual wheat harvest.

Rain has halted wheat harvest progress in parts of Texas and Oklahoma, but was welcomed as portions of the area are still in need of moisture. Overall, the wheat crop remains ahead of schedule and has been reporting above average yields in places.
