Plains Grains Releases First Hard Red Winter Wheat Harvest Report of the 2017 Season

Thu, 18 May 2017 21:05:59 CDT

Plains Grains Releases First Hard Red Winter Wheat Harvest Report of the 2017 Season With the start of the 2017 Winter Wheat Harvest Season, Plains Grains has released their first Hard Red Winter Wheat Harvest report on Thursday evening:


"The first loads of wheat marking the official start of the 2017 HRW wheat harvest were delivered to handling facilities from central Texas northward into southwest Oklahoma over the last few days. This is a week to 10 days ahead of the normal harvest starting date for this region. However, there remain many green and/or wet wheat fields in central Texas northward so the full swing of harvest may still be several days away. Rain storms continued to move across north Texas and Oklahoma over the past few days where wheat kernel moisture is still high, again delaying wide spread harvesting in this area.

"Only a few hundred thousand bushels (a few thousand tons) had been harvested in Texas and Oklahoma to date. Early reports of yields have ranged from 20 bu/ac to 40 bu/ac (1.3 tons/ha 2.7 tons/ha) in both states with test weights ranging from 60 lb/bu to 65 lb/bu (78.9 kg/hl 85.4 kg/hl). Again, all these are very early reports and may or may not reflect the overall crop. There have been no official reports on protein at this point.

"Damage assessments continue in Kansas from the freeze, late snow event and extensive disease pressure, especially in the western part of the state. In Oklahoma, disease pressure in all parts of the state and drought (southern part of the state and far northwest after stand establishment) remain a concern in relation to final harvested acres and overall yield in the state.
An elevated rain probably continues in the forecast over the next week for Texas and Oklahoma, so harvest delays may continue in the short-term."


The report shows all twelve states that produce the HRW Class of Wheat are at zero percent harvested as of May 18. 2017. Based on the first report of the season from the Oklahoma Wheat Commission, there was harvest earlier this week in the Grandfield and Eldorado areas before the rain arrived on Tuesday and now again on Thursday.
