Plains Grains Shows Oklahoma Wheat Harvest at 99% Complete- Texas 98% and Kansas 90%

Plains Grains Shows Oklahoma Wheat Harvest at 99% Complete- Texas 98% and Kansas 90% During the wheat harvest season, Mark Hodges and Plains Grains release a weekly HRW wheat harvest report- here is the latest report from Hodges, as released on Thursday evening, July 15th:

State and Percent Complete:
Texas 98%
Oklahoma 99%
Kansas 90%
Colorado 23%
Nebraska 29%
South Dakota 21%
Montana 8%
Washington 15%
Oregon 18%
Idaho 11%
Wyoming <1%

The 2021 US HRW harvest progress is reflective of the type of year it has been across all production regions. Southern and central states started harvest some 10 days to 2 weeks behind normal starting dates marked by extended periods of rainstorms and high humidity. Then progressed rapidly over 2 weeks as weather cooperated only to slow again toward completion due to high humidity and rain showers. Most states across this region remain behind the normal percent complete with harvest for this date as compared to the historic 5- year average. In contrast, the northern US and the Pacific Northwest are significantly ahead of the historic 5- year average for percent harvested on this date due to widespread drought conditions and record high temperatures during later stages of crop development.

There are now 266 samples in various stages of testing. Overall, average yields are still being reported to range generally between 40 bu/ac (2.69 tons/ha) to 60 bu/ac (4.0 tons/ha) in central and southern areas while tapering off moving further west and north where drought has been most pronounced. Test weight is averaging 61.4 lb/bu (80.7 kg/hl) with higher reports in southern areas and lower reports emerging in drought areas and the more eastern areas where rain has slowed harvest. Protein average increased significantly this week as samples from the western areas of Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas are tested, now averaging 11.4% overall with average TKW now at 31.7g. Average Falling Number this week is 280 seconds.
