Reports have been going around that Passover was supposed to be in mid-March and by the end of March 30% of the wheat was already harvested. I went down to the Northern Negev where the grain ripens earliest and found there was not a single field of harvest-ripe wheat. Many fields were cut for silage (cow feed) before the wheat was fully ripe. We spoke to a cow-herd/ dairy-farmer who explained that due to a drought the farmers expected low yields of seed and decided to sell off the unripe empty-headed grain as cow-feed.
