USDA Predicts Slightly Larger Oklahoma Wheat Crop in June Compared to May

Fri, 10 Jun 2022 14:42:16 CDT

USDA Predicts Slightly Larger Oklahoma Wheat Crop in June Compared to May This year's winter wheat crop has been challenging for farmers in Oklahoma, Kansas and Texas with intense drought, then a rain-delayed harvest. Much lower yields than 2021 will be the result of these setbacks, but according to the June crop production report, the 2022 U.S. winter wheat production forecast numbers look slightly better than predicted since May.

The undesirable farming conditions for 2021 that have carried over into 2022 have penalized this year's crop. The June Crop Production report from USDA presented wheat production estimate numbers and area harvested for the 2022 crop. Oklahoma is forecasted to harvest 2.4 million acres in 2022 which is 19 percent lower than the 2021 crop. USDA estimates 27 bushels per acre compared to the 39 bushels per acre in 2022, but up 2 more bushels per acre as of last month. Wheat production for Oklahoma is forecast at 64.8 million bushels as of June first, up 8 percent from the May estimate and down 44 percent from last year's 115 million bushels.

Over in Texas, the USDA predicts winter wheat harvest to have 1.3 million acres harvested, which is significantly lower than 2021 at 35 percent less. The yield is predicted to be 6 bushels per acre less than 2021. As for winter wheat production, USDA sees Texas producing 40.3 million bushels, which is 46 percent fewer bushels than in 2021

Kansas is below the 2021 crop as well. USDA predicts 6.95 million acres harvested which is only about 1 percent lower than last year's harvested acres of 7 million. Yields are predicted to be 13 bushels per acre less than 2021, but the estimate is the same for both May and June at 39 bushels per acre. For 2022, USDA sees Kansas producing 26 percent fewer bushels of winter wheat than in 2021 at about 275 million bushels.
