According to extension agronomist Curtis Jones and integrated pest management specialist Jim Swart, the good weather condition has triggered the proper growth of the crops. They also note that the adequate rainfall has helped move the nitrogen into the soil and the small number of wheat pathogens such as stripe rust in the season has boosted the crop's growth as well.
