USDA: Wheat Production for Oklahoma Forecast at 105 Million Bushels, Up 49 Percent from Last Year

Thu, 11 Jul 2019 14:56:29 CDT

USDA: Wheat Production for Oklahoma Forecast at 105 Million Bushels, Up 49 Percent from Last Year The United States Department of Agriculture's National Agricultural Statistics Service released its July Crop Production report for the Southern Plains Thursday morning. The July wheat yield and production forecast are based on two surveys conducted by the Southern Plains Regional Field Office: a farm operator survey and an objective yield survey. The farm operator survey was conducted primarily by telephone with some use of mail, internet and personal interviews. The objective yield survey collects actual stalk counts and head weights from plots set up in producer fields across the states of Oklahoma and Texas.


Data provided by Oklahoma and Texas operators are the foundation of the estimates for the Southern Plains region.


According to the report, wheat production for Oklahoma is forecast at 105 million bushels, up 49 percent from last year. This forecast is down 6.5 million from the Oklahoma June forecast. Yield per acre is expected to average 38.0 bushels, up 10.0 bushels from the previous year. Acres expected to be harvested for grain, at 2.75 million acres, are up 10 percent from 2018.
