Fri, 21 Aug 2020 06:42:14 CDT

Plains Grains Calls 2020 Hard Red Winter Wheat Crop a Week Away From Being Complete Plains Grains continues to track the almost complete 2020 Hard Red Winter Wheat harvest. Here is the latest report from Executive Director Mark Hodges, released Thursday evening, August 20th:


"If harvest weather holds across the Pacific Northwest for the next 5 to 7 days, the 2020 HRW wheat harvest will be completed. All remaining states still harvesting are over 70% compete with harvest. Montana (71% complete) continues to report good yields with most areas reporting above 50 bu/ac (3.4 t/ha) with a few limited exceptions. Some limited insect damage is being reported in the central part of the state.

"Overall reported quality is good. Oregon, now 95% complete with harvest, reports average to above average yields with good test weight and no falling number issues. There have been a few reports of lower proteins as harvest starts to wind down.

"Idaho, now 78% complete with harvest, reports average to above average yields. No falling number or insect damage reported. Washington, now 77% complete with harvest, is averaging 11.8% protein on 1300 samples collected and tested through the Washington State Department of Agriculture Grain Inspection labs (in Spokane, Colfax and Pasco)."


Hodges says that with over 367 samples now in the 2020 database- test weights for the entire HRW crop will average 61.5 pounds while average protein has hit 12% for the season.
