Pick Your Poison Regarding the Size of the Oklahoma Wheat Crop- 66 or 70 Million Bushels in 2014

Thu, 01 May 2014 06:34:15 CDT

Pick Your Poison Regarding the Size of the Oklahoma Wheat Crop- 66 or 70 Million Bushels in 2014 You can pick which number you like best when it comes to the size of the Oklahoma Hard Red Winter Wheat Crop. The district by district reports that were presented at the annual meeting of the Oklahoma Grain and Feed Association meeting on Wednesday in Oklahoma City suggested a wheat crop that will produce 70.532 million bushels of wheat at harvest. At least a couple of the reporters expressed some doubt that their area would product as much as they were predicting.

It was that doubt that seemed to be prevalent in the room as wheat industry officials that were gathered offered their guess as to how many bushels would be produced in Oklahoma this year- and the average of that estimate came in at 66.52 million bushels, based on 3.59 million harvested acres and a yield per acre of 18.52 bushels statewide.

It appears that the 2014 crop could be as small or even smaller than the crop produced in 2011 when only 70 million bushels of wheat were harvested on just 3.2 million acres.

As far as the areas that were reported on- here are the estimates given by the scouts:

Southwest Corner (including Jackson and Harmon Counties- 6.182 Million Bushels

Southwest (balance of that quadrant)- 8.5 Million Bushels

Southeastern Quarter of State- .49 Million Bushels

Northeastern Quarter of State- 7.12 Million Bushels

West Central Counties- 8.62 Million Bushels

Panhandle (plus Harper County)- 2.0 Million Bushels

Central Oklahoma- 8.24 Million Bushels

Northwestern Oklahoma- 10.7 Million Bushels

North Central Oklahoma (4 counties, Kay, Grant, Garfield and Noble)- 18.5 Million Bushels
