There were a lot of complaints about last winter, but wheat farmers are looking back to the fall for what will likely be a smaller crop.

Some wheat growers at MSU said that the fall was too wet, too soon for them, and this spring was too wet, and lasted too long. While there are no numbers in, some farmers say that they could have painful drops when the harvest begins. This brings them to a decision--take a slower than usual yield, or plant something else.

Farmer Dave Mulligan said that while farmers like himself will take a hit, consumers probably won't.
