Area Farmers Assess Wheat Crop Following Freeze

B&L Farms, of Live Oak Florida, sent some pictures as they made assessments of their wheat crop following the freezes of March 24 and 25, They recorded low temperatures of 28 degrees at the farm. After a thorough look at the field, they feel like the wheat crop is in good condition at this time. Dr. Dewey Lee of UGA has a publication available online, “Field Diagnosis of Freeze Injury in Wheat.” There are some very good pictures included if you are not confident in identification of Freeze Damage.
