Harvest Slowly Continues in Southwest Oklahoma as Wet Conditions Hinder Harvesters' Progress

Wed, 05 Jun 2019 16:44:02 CDT

Harvest Slowly Continues in Southwest Oklahoma as Wet Conditions Hinder Harvesters' Progress Harvest slowly continues in parts of Southwest Oklahoma in places where producers have been able to dodge the rain which are few. There has been a little harvesting done since Monday afternoon and it is the hope that with the sun and light winds today, that crews will be able to harvest until the predicted rains stop them again this evening and tomorrow. Crews are patiently waiting 24/7 for the window of opportunity where the dew dries, humidity lowers and the ground is dry enough to hold the heavy equipment. Very small amounts of wheat have been taken into Grandfield, Frederick, Altus, Tipton, Lawton and Walters areas with test weights still holding in the 58 to 63 lbs./acre range with the majority in the 60 to 61 lbs./acre range.

Yields have been ranging from 40 to 60 bushels per acre with another report of 70 bushels per acre.   There still has not been enough wheat harvested to get a good read on proteins.

View the next 48 hours of rain prediction for the Southwest area provided by NOAA, here, and the 24 hr. and 48 hr. rainfall accumulation chart across the state of Oklahoma provided by the Oklahoma Mesonet, here and here.

*The next harvest report will be published on Monday, June 10, 2019
