Plains Grains Calls Oklahoma Wheat Harvest 92 Percent Done- Texas Now at 63 Percent CompleteFri, 19 Jun 2020 05:46:11 CDT
The latest report from Plains Grains on the 2020 Hard Red Winter Wheat Harvest is out- and shows over half of the crop was harvested in the state over the last seven days or so. Here is a portion of the report released Thursday evening, June 18, 2020:
"The 2020 HRW wheat harvest made significant progress again this week as almost idea harvest weather continued across virtually all production regions now cutting. Texas is now 63% complete with mainly the northern High Plains of northwest Texas and the irrigated fields of northwest Texas left to be cut.
"Oklahoma’s harvest is also rapidly winding down (92% cut) with mainly the extreme northwest and northeastern areas of the state (and irrigated locations) left to cut.
"Kansas also made good progress this week jumping to 22% now harvested. South central Kansas continues to see exceptionally good yields (55 bu/ac (3.7 ton/ha)) and test weights over 63 lb/bu. (82.8 kg/hl). Harvest in central and eastern Kansas was slowed Thursday evening by rain shower.
"Colorado has started harvesting in the extreme southeast corner of the state with < 1% harvested as of this release.
"Hot dry and windy weather dominated the weather pattern in the central and northern areas of the US where the crop is still anywhere from a few days to weeks from harvest. Drought continues to worsen in in those same areas and is negatively affecting wheat in the final stages of development and will likely affect the final yield and quality in those areas."
