I was very impressed with the column in Sunday’s Tribune, “Why wheat works in Kansas”, written by Dr. Victor Martin agriculture coordinator for Barton Community College. I grew up on a farm and was involved in farming for several years, but I learned much from the column. I did not know the fact that he wrote, “It takes approximately l50 gallons of water to produce a pound of wheat”. If you are interested in winter wheat raised in Kansas, you should find the column and read it. I am sure you will learn a lot about wheat.
Dr. Martin had many other interesting facts about the winter wheat we raise in Kansas today. Thank you Dr. Martin for doing the research for this very interesting column.
