Plains Grains Calls Kansas Wheat Crop 45% Harvested- Oklahoma Now at 98% CompleteThu, 25 Jun 2020 22:04:07 CDT
The latest report from Plains Grains on the 2020 Hard Red Winter Wheat Harvest is out- and shows Kansas close to halfway done with the 2020 Harvest while Oklahoma all but done at 98% complete. Here is a portion of the report released Thursday evening, June 15, 2020:
"Rain across central Kansas and parts of Oklahoma and Texas slowed harvest of the 2020 HRW wheat crop this week. However, the return of dry sunny weather has allowed good harvest progress over the last few days. Kansas is now 45% complete with harvest in virtually all southern half of the state. Yields, while variable, have been generally good and in many cases above what was expected. Protein continues variable as well, mostly ranging from 10% to 12%.
"Early high temperatures, hot dry wind and a lack of moisture in the soil profile have been factors influencing the crop in west central Kansas extending into northwest Kansas, eastern Colorado and southern and western Nebraska. These areas were and are a concern for wheat producers as they approached the final stages of crop development. Test weight of wheat currently being cut in southeastern Colorado is reported to be 56 lb/bu -57 lb/bu (73.8 kg/hl - 75.1 kg/hl) and averaging 13% protein.
"Oklahoma (98% complete) and Texas (91% complete) both are now in the final stages of harvest with mainly irrigated fields left to cut."
