The wheat crop is expected to be the smallest in more than 10 years as drought gripped the Southern Plains, damaging crops, and a global surplus kept prices down. According to the National Agricultural Statistics Service, the 2018 wheat crop is forecast to be 1.19 billion bushels, 6 percent lower than in 2017. KOTV-TV CBS 6 Tulsa (Okla.), May 11, 2018
