Oklahoma Seems to be the Sweet Spot for Winter Wheat At the Moment, According to Crop Progress Report
The United States Department of Agriculture's first national crop progress report for 2019 is not scheduled for release until Monday, April 1st. Though the reporting is still paused on a national level, the USDA did give producers a look at the current wheat crop and pasture conditions within their respective states for the week ending March 17. According to the information in this week’s reports Texas is seeing small amounts of freeze damage, while Oklahoma is jointing at a somewhat normal rate.

Winter wheat jointing reached 20 percent, unchanged from the previous year but down 4 points from normal. Pasture and range condition was rated at 81 percent good to fair.
