Hard Red Winter Wheat Harvest Has Stretched All the Way to the Northern Parts of the HRW Belt

Fri, 24 Jul 2020 05:41:15 CDT

Hard Red Winter Wheat Harvest Has Stretched All the Way to the Northern Parts of the HRW Belt Weekly, Plains Grains issues a Wheat Harvest Report from the Hard Red Winter Wheat Belt- Here is the latest report as released Thursday evening, July 23, 2020:


HRW wheat harvest continued at a rapid pace this week in the central US and is starting to wind down in most areas south of South Dakota which is now 51% complete. South Dakota continues to report exceptionally good yields, high test weights and high protein, a very unusual combination, having all 3 high within the same crop. Colorado (99%) and Nebraska (89%) will be wrapping up harvest in the next few days with mainly irrigated fields left to be cut. Wyoming is (81%) harvested and is winding down. Like Colorado and Nebraska, Wyoming has mainly irrigated fields left to be harvested.


Harvest has now started in all the remaining HRW producing states of Montana (7%) with limited cutting and a slow start. Washington (8%) with early projections of potentially the 4th largest yield on record. Prolonged period of good grain filling weather. No grain inspection facilities report yet, but grower comments suggest falling numbers well above 300. Oregon (19%) harvesting east of the mountains with the western production area (valley) projected to start next week. Oregon is predicting an average to above average crop with good quality. Idaho (9%) reports expectations for a particularly good crop because of excellent grain fill conditions over the past several weeks.


328 samples have now been collected with 284 of those now in various stages of testing. The 284 samples cover Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado and Nebraska with reported results being straight averages with no weighting for production applied. Test weights overall did not change this week from 61.3 lb/bu (80.6 kg/hl). TKW dropped from last week’s 30.4 grams to 30.0 grams this week. Like last week, this drop was expected as harvest (and sampling) continued in areas of prolonged drought and late freeze events which were common this the spring during the later stages of crop development. Protein remained at 11.8% this week. Shrunken and broken increased slightly this week from 1.1% to 1.2%. Mixograph testing of subsamples still indicate this crop has sound functional quality protein and with much more consistency across the sampling locations this week.
