OSU's Kim Anderson Talks Quality of the Harvested Winter Wheat CropThu, 29 Jul 2021 16:06:19 CDT
Oklahoma State University Extension Grains Market Analyst Dr. Kim Anderson talks about what is going on in the Wheat Markets. This week Dr. Anderson comments on the newly harvested winter wheat crop results.
Anderson said harvest is nearly complete, finishing up in the northern part of the state. There, harvest has been significantly less than expected, he said.
Production is around 800 million bushels, up significantly from the 660 million last year, Anderson said. Test weights are also high, as well as protein.
"Prices are relatively good," Anderson said. "You look at the June and July average in Oklahoma, and there is a lot of volatility."
