Mixed results for California wheat farmers after dry spring
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A lack of rainfall is affecting farmers who grow wheat without irrigation.
However, the dry weather also reduced damage from a moisture-related plant disease, which has hurt wheat crops in the past.
Most of the wheat grown in California is sold domestically to local mills or as livestock feed. About two thirds of the state's wheat crop has been harvested so far.
