Winter Wheat Crop Could Be Bountiful

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

According to the USDA, it could be a bountiful harvest for winter wheat.

Production is forecasted to be up 16% from last year.

Farmers have two options when it comes to wheat, plant in the fall and if doesn't make it, replant for spring wheat.

But if it does like this year, farmers can harvest earlier in the summer.

Experts say good snow cover helped this year.
