Wed, 11 Jun 2014 12:39:26 CDT

Oklahoma, Kansas and Texas Wheat Crops All Shrink More in Latest USDA Crop Production Report The Oklahoma, Kansas and Texas hard red winter wheat crops have shrunk further from the May to June USDA Crop Production Reports. The crop estimates, released Wednesday morning, showed bushels per acre cut in all three states, Texas with a drop of four bushels per acre, Kansas with a two bushel per acre drop and a one bushel per acre cut for Oklahoma.   That makes the Oklahoma five percent smaller in June compared to the May estimate at 59.4 million bushels, with an 18 bushel per acre estimate on 3.3 million acres. The Oklahoma crop continues to likely be the smallest wheat crop since 1957 that has been produced in the state. It is roughly half the size of the 2013 wheat crop of 115 million bushels.

The Kansas Crop dropped six and a half percent from May to June, with the June first data released estimating a 29 bushel per acre yield on 8.4 million acres- which makes a Kansas crop pegged at 243.6 million bushels, compared to 260.4 million bushels guessitimated in May. The Texas crop saw a drop of four bushels per acre- and with the expectation of harvesting 1.9 million acres at 25 bushels per acre- the Texas crop could total 47.5 million bushels.

Across the entire country, winter wheat production is forecast at 1.38 billion bushels, down 2 percent from the May 1 forecast and down 10 percent from 2013. Based on June 1 conditions, the United States yield is forecast at 42.4 bushels per acre, down 0.7 bushel from last month and down 5.0 bushels from last year.

Hard Red Winter production, at 720 million bushels, is down 3 percent from last month. Soft Red Winter, at 454 million bushels, is up 2 percent from the May forecast. White Winter, at 206 million bushels, is down 1 percent from last month. Of the White Winter production, 10.9 million bushels are Hard White and 196 million bushels are Soft White.
