Small Grains Summary Shows 2020 Oklahoma Wheat Crop at 104 Million Bushels

Wed, 30 Sep 2020 20:25:51 CDT

Small Grains Summary Shows 2020 Oklahoma Wheat Crop at 104 Million Bushels On Wednesday, the USDA issued their annual Small Grains 2020 summary. According to the agency, "All wheat production totaled 1.83 billion bushels in 2020, down 5 percent from the revised 2019 total of 1.93 billion bushels. Area harvested for grain totaled 36.7million acres, down 2 percent from the previous year. The United States yield was estimated at 49.7 bushels per acre, down 2.0 bushels from the previous year. The levels of production and changes from 2019 by type were: winter wheat, 1.17 billion bushels, down 11 percent; other spring wheat, 586 million bushels, up 4 percent; and Durum wheat, 68.8 million bushels, up 28 percent."

The summary includes the final numbers for the 2020 winter wheat crop- including a final number for the Oklahoma crop of 104 million bushels. That made the 2020 crop in Oklahoma the third largest winter wheat crop in the US- after Kansas and Washington. The 2020 production was five percent under the 110 million bushels produced in 2019.

For the second year in a row, the Oklahoma crop averaged forty bushels per acre- with final harvested acres totalling 2.6 million. (Oklahoma farmers planted 4.25 million acres last fall)

Kansas continues to be the leading winter wheat state- and is the second largest all wheat state- North Dakota has a total of 312 million bushels of all classes of wheat grown in that state. The Kansas crop totalled 281 million bushels in 202- off 67 million bushels from the 2019 crop. A smaller yield per acre was a big reason for a shorter crop in Kansas in 2020- with the yield per acre at 45 bushels versus a 52 bushel per acre yield a year ago.

Texas wheat production was up five million bushels from their 2019 production- 2020 at 70.520 million bushels.
