Texas and Oklahoma are now well over half done with the 2022 HRW harvest after battling an exceptionally dry fall/winter/spring up until harvest was just underway. Rain delays over the last 3 weeks were beginning to be a concern.
However, hot and windy conditions over the last few days have allowed significant progress with harvest over the southern and central Great Plains (including southern 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 59 and 60 lb/bu range with and protein ranging a little higher again this week now averaging above 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.
The first 23 samples have been pulled and show 13.4% protein and 60.4 pounds test weight.
