Experts: Wheat supply could be tight
Published 06/08/2009, The Daily Republic
Experts say the 2009 winter wheat harvest will be one of the lowest in recent years, potentially leaving the nation with a supply that doesn’t meet demand.
Nationally, the winter wheat harvest is expected to be about 20 percent less this season. Fewer acres were planted nationally, and the problem was heightened by a mixture of floods, untimely freezes and drought in other parts of the nation.
