Wheat Harvest Slowed by Rains- Protein Reports Continue to Improve in HRW Wheat

Fri, 09 Jul 2010 6:28:23 CDT

Wheat Harvest Slowed by Rains- Protein Reports Continue to Improve in HRW Wheat The latest wheat harvest update is now in from Plains Grains, Inc and it shows that we are getting closer to completion of the 2010 Hard Red Winter Wheat Crop.

Their latest report states "After open weather last week which allowed harvest to move at a rapid pace through Kansas and southeast Colorado, this week has been a much different story. Rain has shutdown almost all cutting in east central through northeast Colorado extending into western Nebraska. Harvest is now 99% complete in Texas and Oklahoma with Kansas not far behind at 90% complete. Far southeast Colorado is 95% complete, but is only 25% complete just south of I-70 (east central Colorado) and has yet to get fully started north of I-70 in Colorado.

"Wheat protein continues to climb, now at 11.9% as an overall average. However, as reported in past updates, protein continues to be extremely variable between many individual locations."
