Plains Grains Calls Southern Plains Wheat Harvest 100 Percent Done for 2021Fri, 23 Jul 2021 05:35:27 CDT
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 22nd:
State Percent Complete:
South Dakota 39%
7/22/2021: The 2021 US HRW harvest made significant progress this week with the 3 southern most states of Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas now complete. Colorado and Nebraska accelerated harvest this week as well with both states over 65% complete. South Dakota also made progress this week, but has reported much of the crop being baled for hay due the extreme drought. The Montana crop is reported as being “highly variable” due to drought conditions. This is evidenced by protein levels being reported over 13%, but are accompanied by lower test weights due to shriveled grain. The Pacific Northwest continues to battle their own drought conditions and the resulting crop. Oregon and Washington are experiencing depressed yield and abandonment of the crop in some cases in favor of saving any moisture received for fall planting.
Western production areas were not only affected by drought that ranged the full span of the production year, but also much of the area saw record breaking low temperatures during the winter followed by late spring freezes. Additionally, the wheat stem sawfly has affected many fields in northeast Colorado, western Nebraska, Wyoming, and parts of Montana.
There are now 345 samples in various stages of testing. Click on the PDF Link below to review the details of the test results available to date.
