Plains Grains Reports Winter Wheat Harvest Virtually Complete- South to North and to the Pacific 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, August 12th:

State Percent Complete:

Texas 100%
Oklahoma 100%
Kansas 100%
Colorado 100%
Nebraska 100%
South Dakota 100%
Montana 80%
Washington 95%
Oregon 98%
Idaho 85%
Wyoming 98%

8/12/2021: The US HRW harvest continues to move very quickly and is now winding down in the Pacific Northwest. Remaining states are 80% or more complete as hot and dry weather continues to dominate the weather pattern. Those conditions are in sharp contrast to the extremely wet and humid pattern that prevailed in the southern and central Great Plains during crop maturity continuing through majority of harvest. Those sharp contrasts have also been exhibited via yield, kernel characteristics and protein levels.

There are currently 436 of an expected 500 samples in the lab and are various stages of testing. Overall, there was very little change in data this week with a slight decrease in falling number 367 down from last week’s 370. All other parameters did not change as expected with only 18 more samples arriving this week and no new grade information. There have now been 70 composites formed in the lab across 29 grainsheds and broken out by low (below 11.5% protein), medium (11.5% - 12.5% protein) and high (above 12.5% protein). Milling has begun on those samples. 374 individual samples had an test weight avg. 60.6 lb/bu as reported in the table below with a (max 65 lb/bu (85.4 kg/hl) and min 52 lb/bu (68.6 kg/hl) Protein on 381 samples avg. 11.6%, with a (max 16.5% min 8.8%).
