Alternatives to wheat include canola, corn, cotton, sesame, and soybeans (Table 1). Costs are estimated for the Alfalfa, Garfield, and Kingfisher county areas. Yields are based on 20-year averages (1997-2016).
Pea plantings will probably decline to a seven-year low this spring.
Production of milling quality wheat in the U.S. should result in increased export demand and relatively higher wheat prices.
