Harvesters Across the State Begin to Slow this Week with 93% of Harvest Completed in OklahomaWed, 27 Jun 2018 12:05:56 CDT
The Oklahoma Wheat Commissioned published its latest wheat harvest report this week, offering a look at the progress made since it last reported observations from the field in Oklahoma. The full report is as follows below.
"The Oklahoma Wheat Commission harvest has not progressed much from our report given on Tuesday, June, 19th, due to the rains that have been going thru the Panhandle and Northern regions of Oklahoma over this past week. Some producers have reported over 6 inches of moisture the last seven days even in several parts of the Panhandle. As of today, harvest has been progressing in Boise City, where moisture received has still been slim. Producers in other parts of the Panhandle are hoping to get into the fields today and tomorrow, while in some areas, it will still be a few more days even in parts of Northern Oklahoma. Grain quality to this point continues to be favorable with high test weights and high proteins; however, the producers in parts of Northern Oklahoma are concerned that test weights will be impacted on what is left in the field. Nothing has been reported on irrigated wheat in the Panhandle regions since many producers were just getting started with harvest before the rains came in. Test weights are averaging 60 to 62 lbs./bu. on the wheat being harvested today in the Panhandle, with reports on protein running 12.5 to 13%. Yields reported on the dryland have ranged from 10 bushels per acre to the mid 20ís. An occasional report of dryland wheat making in the high 30ís has been reported."
