Wheat Harvest Continues in SW Oklahoma - Early Results Show Test Weights 58-63 lbs., 35-60 bpa

Wheat Harvest Continues in SW Oklahoma - Early Results Show Test Weights 58-63 lbs., 35-60 bpa Harvest continues in parts of Southwest Oklahoma in places where producers have been able to dodge the rain long enough to get something out of the field. There was some harvesting done on Friday afternoon and Saturday afternoon when the heavy dews dried only to be met with rain Saturday evening and Sunday ranging from .10” of rain to 1.5” inches of rain. Small amounts of wheat have been taken into Grandfield, Frederick, Altus, Tipton and Lawton areas with test weights ranging from 58 to 63 lbs./acre with the majority in the 60 to 61 lbs./acre range.

Yields have been ranging from 35 to 60 bushels per acre with one report of 70 bushels per acre. Not enough wheat has been harvested to get a good read on proteins. Farmers and harvest crews are ready in the area to start cutting as soon as the rain stops and humidity decreases. Today and tomorrow, producers are hopeful to get back in the fields in some areas in an effort to beat the rain predicted to come back Wednesday and Thursday. “The wheat looks really good but we need 2 weeks of dry weather and we would have the entire area harvested,” said one Coop manager.

Producers across the state continue to be concerned about the outlook for wheat harvest when looking at the next 48 hr. precipitation outlook. If the rain amounts stay low, there looks to be a 5-day window where harvest can ramp up. Enclosed, see the next 48 hours of rain prediction for the Southwest area provided by NOAA and 7-day rainfall accumulation chart across the state of Oklahoma provided by the Oklahoma Mesonet.

*The next harvest report will be published on Wednesday, June 5, 2019
