Spring field harvest is underway in South Carolina’s Pee Dee region with variable yields due to volatile weather.

“We’ve had a lot of peas, wheat, and oats harvested.  Yields have been variable so far.  ESO peas are averaging around 35-40 bushels with the highest reported yields in the high 60’s.  Wheat is ranging anywhere from the 20’s to upper 70’s.  The cold snap we got in March really hurt in some areas,” said Justin Ballew, Clemson University Extension agent in the Pee Dee region, in his excellent June 2 blog post.
