Plains Grains Calls Oklahoma Wheat Harvest 93 Percent Done- Kansas Hits Halfway Mark

Thu, 03 Jul 2014 06:15:08 CDT

Plains Grains Calls Oklahoma Wheat Harvest 93 Percent Done- Kansas Hits Halfway Mark Mark Hodges with Plains Grains has released his weekly Harvest report a day early ahead of the Fourth of July holiday- and reports that 93% of the Oklahoma Wheat Harvest is done, 85% is complete in Texas and Kansas has finally fit 52% in the latest report.

"The HRW wheat harvest now extends well into Colorado (at least in the southeastern one-third) and with approximately 15% of the crop cut in Colorado early yields are ranging from 5 bu/ac to 30 bu/ac (0.3 - 2.0 tons/ha) with overall reported averages at around 20 bu/ac (1.3 tons/ha). Harvest is now entering Nebraska on the southern border, but it is still too early to determine yield or other factors.

"Rain continues to be a major issue in getting this crop out. Even in areas where harvest has yet to begin (NE Colorado, SW Nebraska and extreme NW Kansas) received extensive precipitation and some hail over the past week. Kansas continues to battle muddy fields (with only 52% of harvest completed) in an effort to get this crop out ahead of heavy weed pressure (broadleaf and grassy weeds), this is also a major issue in the few fields in Oklahoma and Texas that have yet to be cut."
