A cold spell in April is part of the reason agriculture officials are expecting a smaller winter wheat crop this year.
The latest forecast from the U.S. Department of Agriculture says Kentucky farmers are expected to harvest 27 million bushels of winter wheat this year, which would be down 12 percent from last year.
Farmers are expected to harvest 60 bushels per acre, down 10 bushels—and that’s likely due in part to an April frost that caused some damage to crops—especially in low lying areas.
Officials also say a few pollination problems and drought in parts of the commonwealth have hindered the wheat crop.
Kansas was the number one wheat producing state last year with 276 million bushels—with 387 million bushels forecast in that state this year.

Two vehicle crashes investigated yesterday by city and county officers sent two of the three drivers involved to the hospital, though a motorcycle operator was transported to Jennie Stuart Medical Center and an SUV driver escaped injury.
Treated at Jennie Stuart Medical Center following a crash on Russellville Road at the bypass at 8:15 yesterday morning was 36-year old Arthur Tilley of 206 South Fowler Avenue.
That's according to the report filed by Sheriff's Captain Mike Johnson, who says Tilley’s motorcycle collided with the SUV operated by 58-year old Linda Wease of 700 Pembroke Road, who was attempting to make a left turn onto the by-pass and did not see the bike.
The other crash yesterday involving injury was investigated by city police officer Eugene Trumble on Fort Campbell Boulevard between Country Club Lane and Laurel Cove Drive.
Taken to Jennie Stuart Medical Center was 39-year old Sherry L Morris of Hopkinsville.
The report says Ms. Morris was northbound when a vehicle exited the Goodwill building parking lot and the collision occurred.
The second vehicle was operated by 69-year old Mary O. Brown of Hopkinsville, who was not injured.
Hopkinsville Police are investigating a fight on Charlie Court last night that resulted in a juvenile sustaining a laceration.
Few details are left on the media version of the report, but the incident began around 11:30 at 200 Charlie, where Officer Morgan Lageman responded and writes many of the people involved had some type of minor injury.
The worst injury was on a 17-year old male, who had to be treated for a severe laceration. The alleged perpetrators are listed as friends and acquaintances to the victim.
No arrests have been made and the two suspects are listed as 18 and 23-years old.
