Harvest Of Okla. Wheat Begins, Farmers Optimistic

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Harvest is now under way of wheat in Oklahoma with officials and farmers optimistic that the 2012 crop will far surpass the drought-ravaged 2011 crop.
    
Debbie Wedel (WAY'-dul) with the Oklahoma Wheat Commission says nearly 155 million bushels are expected to be harvested - up from 70.4 million last year.
    
The 2011 crop was the smallest since the 1950s.
    
Wheat farmer David Gammill of Chattanooga said he's getting 30 to 40 bushels per acre after averaging 9 last year.
    
Gammill said prices are about $6 per bushel - with the break-even point about $5 per bushel.
