“Wheat harvest across Kansas has commenced. The Grain Science and Industry Department at Kansas State University has a new program that will allow interested parties the ability to track harvest and wheat quality as soon as the data is available.

“Participating local elevators will submit wheat samples and the testing will occur at K-State’s Wheat Quality Laboratory and the Kansas Grain Inspection Laboratory. Once the samples have been tested and the data has been entered, GIS mapping technology developed by K-State’s Department of Geography, will allow interested parties to view wheat quality data by region across Kansas on the K-State Grain Science and Industry’s department Web site, www.grains.ksu.edu.”
