Wheat and Canola Harvest Nearly Complete Across Oklahoma- Spring Crops Helped by Rains

Tue, 24 Jun 2014 03:59:57 CDT

Wheat and Canola Harvest Nearly Complete Across Oklahoma- Spring Crops Helped by Rains Oklahoma's wheat and canola harvest is nearly complete. In the weekly crop progress report released Monday afternoon by USDA, wheat harvest is 74 percent complete, which ties the five year average. Canola harvest is 93 percent complete. The first cutting of alfalfa hay is 88 percent complete.   

Range and pasture conditions continued to be rated mostly good to fair. Grasshopper populations continued to increase in various parts of the state. Spring seeded crops continue to hold their condition. The corn crop has emerged with 80 percent rated in good to fair condition. Sorghum, soybeans, cotton and peanuts are all rated in the 90's for good to fair condition.

The weekly report was compiled before the latest round of general rains could be considered- but it shows a majority of the top soil ratings across Oklahoma to be in the "adequate" category- while the top soil ratings were pretty much unchanged on the week at 66 percent in the very short to short categories.
