Day One of the Wheat Quality Council Kansas Wheat Tour Sees 21% Higher Yield Than a Year Ago Across Northern Kansas

Wed, 01 May 2019 05:24:55 CDT

Day One of the Wheat Quality Council Kansas Wheat Tour Sees 21% Higher Yield Than a Year Ago Across Northern Kansas More than 75 people from 25 U.S. states and 3 foreign countries traveled on six routes between Manhattan and Colby, Kan., Tuesday, stopping at wheat fields every 15-20 miles along the routes, as part of the Wheat Quality Council’s 2019 Hard Winter Wheat Tour.

Tuesday’s 20 cars of wheat tour scouts made 240 stops at wheat fields across north central, central and northwest Kansas, and into southern counties in Nebraska. The calculated yield is based on what scouts saw at this point in time. The crop is behind schedule in terms of development, and a lot can happen between now and harvest.

The calculated yield from all cars in Kansas was 46.9 bushels per acre. That compares to the day one average seen a year ago of 38.2 bushels per acre.

In addition, scouts from Nebraska and Colorado met the group in Colby, Kansas, to give reports from their states. The estimate for the Nebraska wheat crop is 47.4 million bushels, down from 49.5 million bushels last year. The estimated yield average is 44 bushels per acre. In Colorado, the estimated yield was 46.5 bushels per acre. Production in Colorado is estimated at 97.2 million bushels, up from 70.2 million bushels last year.

After day one of scouting fields and coming together in Colby for a report session, Chris Kirby of the Oklahoma Wheat Commission talked with Don Atkinson of Wheat Squared about what she saw as one of the scouts. Listen to their conversation by clicking on the LISTEN Bar below.
