Winter Wheat Ahead of Schedule

We received about an inch of welcome rain. 
With it came a return to cooler temperatures. 
 The combination has made the Winter Wheat burst forth with vigor.
In the field, it seemed I could see it growing. 
We had an early Spring this year. 
The plants broke dormancy early, after a mild Winter. 
 The Winter Wheat is now in the flag leaf stage.
The rainy cool down is much to its liking. 
It is good to have a breeze to dry off the leaves after the rain.
 There are a few signs of disease on the leaves which we will monitor carefully.
The crop is speeding along in Griggs Dakota.
