(Lawton-AP) -- Southwestern Oklahoma wheat farmers say dry conditions are threatening the area's winter wheat crop.

Rainfall in Apache is 13 inches below normal and in some areas the wheat is not even up.

Area rainfall late in the week might have helped some wheat to break through the soil, but it will take several days, especially with the colder weather.

Growers who suffer the most are those who graze cattle on their winter wheat fields.
