Top Soil Moisture, YES. Sub soil moisture - NONE. (NW KS) If the faucet shuts off in the spring, the well developed wheat will not last long when it comes out of dormancy. We need lots of snow without strong winds this winter. (oxymoron)

Parts of SW Kansas have been very fortunate since June to finally get some beneficial soaking rains after about two years without any. After starting off with no precipitation from Jan-May we have had close to the 30-year average from June to the present. We are looking good out here right now, but overall subsoil moisture is still limited. Dryland wheat looks as good as it has since fall 2009, but another dry April/May and we could be right back into Extreme drought conditions again. But spirits are much higher now and maybe we'll break this dry pattern for a while.

West-central Texas Panhandle had a decent summer in spots. Corn and sorghum did good to excellent for many, still drought areas remained in the region. Cotton looks pretty average with significantly lower acres making it to harvest. This fall some wheat made it up on natural moisture, some on irrigation, some too dry to sprout. Prospects for high wheat yields on dry land are very limited at this time. It will take a lot of April showers for wheat to flower.

It's possible to keep grain in condition through the winter with the help of <a href="http://www.aquar-system.com/catalog/grain-moisture-measurement-in-flow/grain-moisture-meter-in-flow-a315/">a grain moisture measurement in flow A 315</a>. And of course, it's a very important characteristic of grain.
