LAWRENCE, Kan. (DTN) -- The rain that Kansas and Oklahoma wheat farmers waited so long for has finally come, but only in time to delay harvest and jeopardize the quality of the struggling crop.

Many of the farmers who have managed to get into their fields are faced with the complications of harvesting short, thin stands and deciding whether yields will justify the cost of harvesting, farmers and crop experts told DTN.

In southwest Kansas, dryland farmer Max Engler lamented Mother Nature's poor timing, which he says will keep him out of the his fields for at least another week.
