Harvest Heats Up- Oklahoma Wheat Commission Calls Harvest Twelve Percent Complete as of Midday Monday

Harvest Heats Up- Oklahoma Wheat Commission Calls Harvest Twelve Percent Complete as of Midday Monday Each harvest season, the Oklahoma Wheat Commission releases wheat harvest reports as information becomes available about that year's wheat harvest. The latest report is out, as of Monday midday, June 6th, as provided by Oklahoma Wheat Commission Executive Director Mike Schulte:

"Harvest is starting in most places of the state, although producers in parts of Southwest Oklahoma, South Central and areas of Northern Oklahoma continue to deal with mud. Test weights in areas of Southwest and in the Central western regions have dropped depending on location and where the rains fell.   Early reports of wheat being taken in at elevator locations in Southwest Oklahoma now are reporting weights of 58 to 59lbs./bu, (74.64 kg/hl-75.933 kg/hl). Yields still ranging from the mid 30ís to mid 50ís mainly. A better estimate of actual weights will be available once more wheat is harvested later today.

"In central Oklahoma from El Reno to Omega, harvest was in full swing starting on Friday evening in some places East of Okarche and Kingfisher. East of HWY 81 the storms last week were minimal and test weights have not been impacted much of those weights still coming in around 61 to 62 lbs./bu, (78.507 kg/hl-79.794kg/hl). West of HWY 81 test weights have dropped in the 58 to 60 lbs./bu, ( 74.64 kg/hl-77.22) range. Yields in this region have been reported to be making from the mid 30ís to the mid 50ís with one field yesterday reported in this region to be making over 65 bushels per acre.

"In Northern Oklahoma producers were just starting to get combines out in the fields with some cutting taking place East of Alva. Test weights on some of the first loads of wheat taken in on early samples were reported at 61 lbs./bu, (78.507kg/hl). Protein test throughout the state have been ranging all over the board mostly from 10.5% to 11.5%, with the hopes that those numbers might be higher as we move further North and into the Panhandle region. Harvest is estimated to be 12% complete in the state today!"
