Plains Grains Reports Oklahoma Wheat Harvest 81% Done- Texas 69% and Kansas 19% Complete

Plains Grains Reports Oklahoma Wheat Harvest 81% Done- Texas 69% and Kansas 19% Complete The latest harvest report from Plains Grains has been released- showing hard red winter wheat harvest now well into Kansas- with many fields in the states of Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas being bypassed by the combine in 2018- instead being harvested by cattle or by hay bailer. Here is the text of the report, as released Thursday evening, June 14, 2018.

"Harvesting of the 2018 HRW wheat crop continues to swiftly move northward as abundant sunshome and hot temperatures have been the rule across most of the central and southern Great Plains where wheat has matured rapidly over the last month. Limited rain events, localized in nature, have done little to slow progress of cutting.

"Harvesting (at least on a limited basis) has been reported in north central Kansas within one county of the Nebraska state line. Wheat within the entire length of the central corridor of Kansas has ripened at an accelerated pace over the last 4 weeks due to limited moisture and very high temperatures relative to normal. Kansas in now estimated to be 19% compete with harvest (the majority of that in that central corridor and southern 1/3 of the state). Harvest in western and northwestern Kansas has not yet begun or only on a very limited basis.


"Harvest is rapidly winding down in central Texas (over 90% complete in central and north Texas with northwest Texas (High Plains) still just over 50% complete). As a state- Plains Grains is calling Texas 69% complete.


"Oklahoma is now 81% complete (with the southern half of Oklahoma now over 90% complete, the northern half 60% complete and the far northwest (and Panhandle) just over 40% complete. Earlier in the week- the Oklahoma Wheat Commission had pegged Oklahoma 77% harvested on a state wide basis.


"The first 61 samples are now in the lab for evaluation and represent central and northern Texas and the southern half of Oklahoma. Overall test weight has increase over last week, now averaging 61.4 lb/bu (80.7 kg/hl) . Average protein continues to be very good at 12.4%."
