Harvest Summary of HRW June 10, 2022
By Mark Hodges, Executive Director, Plains Grains, Inc.
State Percent Complete:
South Dakota 0%
Rain again continued to dominate and delay the 2022 HRW harvest progress over this past week in most parts
of Oklahoma and Texas. However, harvest progress did break 35% in Texas and broke 20% in Oklahoma this
week. An optimistic forecast for drier weather over the next several days should allow a marked increase in
acres cut. The next few days will also likely see harvest begin in Kansas.
Early reports on yield continue in the 20 bu/ac to 30 bu/ac range with higher and lower exceptions. Test weights continue generally in the 58 and 60
lb/bu range with and protein ranging a little higher than last week now ranging from 12.0% to 12.5% with some isolated reports over 15%.
PGI only pulls samples when at least 30% of the harvest is complete within a geographical area. Wheat samples are now starting to hit the lab and we should have very early testing results
included in next week's report.
Here are some harvest highlights from the three southern plains HRW states:
1. Texas 6% G/E. Slow progress due to rain, moving quickly because of low yields, 36% harvested.
Nearly complete in south and central TX, good protein ~13%, 15-20 bu/ac, TW avg 60 lb/bu.
Blacklands better wheat because more precip. Variable yields in Rolling Plains, about 75% done with
harvest. Good protein, avg TW. Really hot and dry this weekend harvest should pick up in Panhandle.
2. Oklahoma 10% G/E. Only 20% harvested, slow due to rains. Most of progress is in south
west. Severe hail damage and heavy rains (~9 in) in many parts of central and south central, likely
impact already low yield predictions by making the state average lower. TW have dropped some, 58-59
lb/bu, but all locations are still taking in 60's.
3. Kansas Harvest is getting close, might be some test cutting on the southern border of Kansas this
weekend. Storms throughout the state brought heavy rains during the week, and isolated incidences of
hail and wind damage on wheat fields. Crop is maturing with 61% of the state coloring. Next week
shaping up to be high temperatures and with fields drying out, harvesting will begin in southern
