End of January Crop Rating Shows Oklahoma Wheat Crop Improvement

Tue, 31 Jan 2017 13:47:43 CST

End of January Crop Rating Shows Oklahoma Wheat Crop Improvement The 2017 Oklahoma Hard Red Winter Wheat Crop improved in January compared to the report released at the begining of the year, according to the January 30th report from the US Department of Agriculture.

According to the January report, "Conditions of small grains were rated mostly fair to good. Winter wheat grazed reached 55 percent, up 6 points from the previous year. Rye grazed reached 60 percent, down 10 points from the previous year. Oats grazed reached 60 percent, up 35 points from the previous year."


The Ag Statistics Service also offered this observation on pasture conditions- " Pasture and range conditions were rated mostly fair to good with 40 percent rated poor to ve ry poor. Livestock were rated at 45 percent in good condition and 44 percent in fair."


The wheat crop improved from 25% in good condition and no wheat in excellent condition at the start of the year- versus the latest report showing 3% excellent and 30% in good condition. Credit for the improvement has been attributed to the mid month rain and ice storm that provided valuable moisture.
