Plains Grains Reports Start of Kansas Wheat Harvest- And Full Speed Ahead in Oklahoma

Fri, 18 Jun 2021 06:02:28 EDT

Plains Grains Reports Start of Kansas Wheat Harvest- And Full Speed Ahead in Oklahoma On a weekly basis, Mark Hodges with Plains Grains is releasing his latest Hard Red Winter Wheat Harvest Report. Here is the report released on Thursday evening, June 17, 2021: (our picture from the Oklahoma Wheat Commission Facebook Page- courtesy of farmer Daniel Crossley)

"The 2021 HRW wheat harvest is now picking up speed as hot temperatures, wind and lower humidity prevails across most of the southern and central Great Plains. Very good yields (generally 40 bu/ac (2.69 tons/ha) to 60 bu/ac (4.0 tons/ha) and test weights (most areas above 60 lbs./bu (78.9 kg/hl) to as high as 65 lbs./bu (85.4 kg/hl) continue to be reported across much of the region. The exceptions have been those areas in central Texas that received 6 to 8 (15 to 20 cm) after the crop matured affecting test weight and final yield.

"The Texas HRW wheat crop is now 38% harvested, those acres are predominately in southern and central part of the state. Harvested acres remain behind the 5-year average of 55% by this date with progress starting to pick up as cloudy cool and rainy conditions have given way to sunshine and temperatures in the mid to upper 90s.

"Oklahoma, (now 19% complete with harvest) is also still significantly behind the 5-year average of 41% harvested by this date and continues across from the Oklahoma/Texas border to the Oklahoma/Kansas border. Oklahoma is reporting very good yields and test weights with wide ranges of protein generally 10.5% to 11.5%." (Note- that the 19% harvest reported by PGI is well behind with the Wednesday Oklahoma Wheat Commission Report of 35 to 40% complete.)

"Kansas, (now 7% complete with harvest) and while behind the 5-year average of 7% by this date is closer to normal than Oklahoma and Texas. Yield, test weight and protein are much like those being reported in Oklahoma."

Day One of the Kansas Wheat Harvest Report from the Kansas Wheat Alliance is now online- and is available here.
