The latest wheat harvest report for the hard red winter wheat belt from Plains Grains shows that wheat harvest has progressed to 99 percent complete in both Oklahoma and Texas and 97 percent complete in Kansas. Harvest in Colorado is at 49 percent complete and Nebraska has 38 percent now in the grain bin. Here's the commentary released with the Thursday night report from Executive Director Mark Hodges:
"The 2015 HRW wheat harvest continues in high gear or is essentially in the books for nearly all producing states with the exception of Wyoming and North Dakota. North Dakota continues to see precipitation especially in the northern and northeastern parts of the state. Harvest is virtually over in Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas and has been slowed in Colorado and Nebraska due to rain. South Dakota is now 15 percent complete with harvest with high heat and humidity continuing across the state. Montana (17 percent complete), Washington (22 percent complete), Oregon (33 percent complete) and Idaho (18 percent complete) are all well ahead normal harvest progress for this date as an abnormally hot and dry spring pushed the crop to early maturity. These same areas are also seeing sporadic rain storms accompanied by hail which has caused crop losses and lodging.
"There are now 245 of an expected 530 samples in the lab for evaluation. Protein decreased by one-tenth of a percentage point from last week (12.7 percent to 12.6 percent), but still a very good average and slightly below the 2014 final average of 13.3 percent. Test weight has continued to increase as harvest has move northward, now with an overall average of 58.6 lb/bu. (77.1 Kg/hl) as compared to 58.5 lb/bu (77.0 kg/hl) last week. The FN average increased slightly this week to 390 sec. and is comparable to the 2014 overall average of 387 sec. The TKW overall average this week increased another 0.7g to 28.6g, and continues its steady increase each week."
