Border to Border Wheat Harvest Underway in Oklahoma

Thu, 01 Jun 2017 15:00:51 CDT

Border to Border Wheat Harvest Underway in Oklahoma Oklahoma Wheat Commission Executive Director Mike Schulte, today, released the latest report on the progress of this year's wheat harvest in the state.

Wheat harvest continues to move across the state with producers on the Oklahoma Texas line wrapping up. The Oklahoma Wheat Commission has also had a couple reports of harvest taking place in a few select places on the Oklahoma Kansas line. Most elevator locations in North central and Northern Oklahoma think the majority of the wheat will be ready to harvest in the next 7 to 10 days. Some of the early reports of harvest in this region are from early plantings and early maturing varieties. Since more producers have crop rotations taking place in the North much of the wheat was planted later making for a later harvest. Test weights across the state for the most part are still considered to be extremely favorable. Producers in Southwest and Central Oklahoma regions are moving full speed ahead trying to get as much harvested before the predicted rains this coming weekend. While many producers are wrapping up in Southwest Oklahoma, most are concerned about the new 7 day forecast.


Test weights across the state are averaging 60 to 62 lbs./bu. Yields on the wheat that has been harvested are reported all across the board, depending on variety, management practices and the weather. Proteins across Texas on up into central Oklahoma are being reported in the 10.5 to 11% range.
