Oklahoma Spring Planted Crop Prospects Look Favorable for 2010 HarvestThu, 12 Aug 2010 9:47:46 CDT
The USDA has released Crop Production numbers based on field survey work as of August first. We have details on both this report from USDA's NASS, as well as the Supply Demand data from the Economic Research Service, which shows a sharply reduced global wheat stock number.
Click here for our earlier coverage of these two reports at the national and global level.
In general, Oklahoma's spring planted crops have fared well, despite the recent weeks of hot drier weather. For example, the corn crop is projected to have the same number of acres this year as last, but a thirty bushel per acre increase in yields- pictured here is some of that corn growing back at the end of June in Grant County. Only grain sorghum will see a smaller crop produced this year versus 2009.
