Plains Grains Calls Oklahoma Wheat Harvest Almost Done at 91 Percent Complete- Kansas Now 44% Harvested

Fri, 23 Jun 2017 03:32:09 CDT

Plains Grains Calls Oklahoma Wheat Harvest Almost Done at 91 Percent Complete- Kansas Now 44% Harvested Plains Grains releases a weekly harvest update during the hard red winter wheat harvest season- the following is the latest report issued by their Executive Director, Mark Hodges, on Thursday evening, June 22nd:

"Harvest progress of the 2017 HRW wheat crop is well into the north central and northeastern areas of Kansas and while not yet crossing the northern border, some test cutting is expected in Nebraska within the next few days. Severe storms and large hail have hampered cutting and has damaged some wheat in southwest Kansas. Yields continue to be variable in Kansas generally averaging between 30 bu/ac – 40 bu/ac (2.0 tons/ha– 2.7 tons/ha), but ranging from 20 bu/ac (1.3 tons/ha) to over 80 bu/ac (5.4 tons/ha). However, test weight continues to be consistent and are above 60 lb/bu (78.9 kg/hl). Kansas is now 44% complete with the 2017 HRW harvest.

"As cutting has progressed into and through northwestern Texas protein has been the bright spot with a higher overall average than any other area of its size harvested. While variable, the overall protein average from this region is 11.7%. Texas is now 83% complete with harvest and starting to wind down. The Oklahoma HRW harvest is nearing completion as well, now at 91% complete with only the far northwestern part of the state yet to be cut- including the Panhandle. The Kansas Wheat Harvest is in full swing as it approaches the half way mark at 44% complete.

"There are now 133 samples of an expected 530 in the lab representing limited areas of extreme south-central Kansas, all of Oklahoma and Texas. Average protein increased significantly this week to 11.1% (up from 10.8% last week) and is attributed to higher proteins in northwest Texas and north central Oklahoma. Average test weight regained the 0.3 lbs. lost last week, 60.6 lb/bu back up to 60.9 lb/bu (79.7 kg/hl back up to 80.1 kg/hl). Test weights increased as harvest crossed the Oklahoma/Kansas border."
