Plains Grains Says Texas Wheat Crop Now 18 Percent Harvested- Oklahoma 8 Percent Complete

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 04:12:47 CDT

Plains Grains Says Texas Wheat Crop Now 18 Percent Harvested- Oklahoma 8 Percent Complete On a weekly basis each Thursday evening from late May through July and often into August, Plains Grains issues a hard red winter wheat harvest update. This is the second report of the season- and it finds that two states now have had enough harvest to show a percentage done. According to June second report, Texas has 18% of the crop now harvest- and Oklahoma is 8% complete.

According to the commentary that is included in the full report that can be seen by clicking on the PDF file link at the bottom of this story, Mark Hodges with Plains Grains says "The 2016 HRW wheat harvest continues to sputter and is struggling to make significant progress because of relentless rain events across Texas and Oklahoma. Wheat in central and northeast Texas has been ripe and ready to cut for 2 weeks, but other than sporadic cutting, moisture continues to keep combines out of fields. Other than wheat cut in the coastal areas, wheat cut in west central region makes up a large percentage of the 18% harvested acres in Texas.

"Further north into Oklahoma where much of the wheat has been ready to cut for several days, the quote on Thursday from an elevator manager in the western part of the state when asked about harvest progress was, “…at a standstill”. What wheat that has been delivered continues to have very good test weight and producers have been pleased with the yields.

"Early protein reports have been variable with most elevators in Texas and Oklahoma seeing subnormal protein being delivered. Test cutting in Oklahoma is now being reported within one county of the Kansas state line. The short-range forecast indicates a drying pattern beginning early next week. If that happens, it is likely that the 2016 HRW Wheat harvest could be in full swing from central Texas to southern Kansas."
