Plains Grains Sees Harvest Progress Edging Forward in West Central and Northwestern Kansas as Weather Prolongs Efforts

Fri, 07 Jul 2017 03:44:06 CDT

Plains Grains Sees Harvest Progress Edging Forward in West Central and Northwestern Kansas as Weather Prolongs Efforts 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, July 6th.

According to Hodges, "The 2017 HRW wheat harvest delays continue to frustrate producers in west central Kansas extending into northwest Kansas, northeast Colorado and southern Nebraska as cutting progress has continued to be significantly slowed over the past week due to scattered showers, severe thunderstorms and/or high humidity. Other than the areas mentioned, the remainder of Kansas is quickly winding down with harvest. Harvest is in full swing in southeast Colorado extending northward to the east central part of the state and on a statewide basis is now 20% complete. Wheat harvest in Nebraska is 23% complete with the southern 1/3 of the state now over 50% complete and the far western areas either just starting or still a few days away from starting. Texas and Oklahoma are both 99% complete with harvest. Plains Grains is calling Kansas now 79% harvested, compared to 58% one week ago.


"Sampling out of western Kansas and information from Colorado indicate variability in protein levels. However, the last 25 samples tested from western/central Kansas have averaged 12.4% protein with a test weight average of 58.3 lb/bu (76.7 kg/hl) and 0.5% S&B."
