Plains Grains Updates Wheat Harvest Progress

Fri, 20 Jun 2014 05:39:30 CDT

Plains Grains Updates Wheat Harvest Progress The latest Plains Grains Hard Red Winter Wheat harvest report is out- and it shows that Oklahoma has now reached the 72 percent completion mark. Texas has harvested 55% of their crop and Kansas has moved to 18% done as operations have mostly been halted with rains.


According to the report- "The 2014 HRW wheat harvest has moved well into Kansas with test cutting now just short of the Nebraska border (but is concentrated in the southern half of the state). Cutting progress in Kansas continues to be significantly slowed not only because of continued rain showers, but now many fields are completely saturated with water, so mud is a major issue. Harvest in northwest Texas (Panhandle) is just beginning. This area has a concentration of irrigated fields of which many are still not fully mature.


"In Oklahoma, major areas yet to be harvested are just south of the Kansas state line in the eastern part of the north central region and the far northwest (Panhandle) side of the state. Harvest is expected to begin in southeastern Colorado next week.


"Generally, yields continue to range from 5 bu/ac to 30 bu/ac (.3 to 2.0 tons/ha) with no definitive reason offered at this point other than drought (and sometimes late freeze) being a common denominator. Quality has declined over the last week as many producers and elevators report a general decrease in test weight where repeated rains have kept harvesters out of the field."
