Crop Scouts See a Two Percent Smaller Wheat Crop in 2021- Predicting a 110 Million Bushel Harvest

Wed, 05 May 2021 05:44:30 CDT

Crop Scouts See a Two Percent Smaller Wheat Crop in 2021- Predicting a 110 Million Bushel Harvest Drought and freeze damage has cut into the potential of the 2021 Oklahoma Hard Red Winter Wheat Crop- so say the crop reporters who provided area snapshots of the crop that is now four to six weeks away from grain harvest. When you total up the nine regional areas that were reported on Tuesday at the Oklahoma Grain and Feed Association annual meeting in Edmond, it has been estimated that Oklahoma may harvest 2.985 million acres- achieve a yield of 37.1 bushels an acre and put 110.741 million bushels of wheat into the bin this harvest season.

That compares to 113.4 million bushels actually harvested in 2020 with a record yield of 42 bushels per acre.

Gary Strickland with OSU Extension reported that even with about one fourth of the planted acres in the southwest area being grazed or bailed here in 2021- that he anticipates over 23 million bushels will be harvested in about a month- with an average yield of 38.9 bushels per acre in those southwest counties. Scouts reporting on the eastern northcentral counties believe that their region will also top out around 23 million bushels- and that Garfield and Grant Counties will claim their traditional spots as the top wheat producing counties in Oklahoma once again this year.

The Oklahoma numbers are normally reported at the OGFA meeting each May- and then explained to the Wheat Quality Council's Kansas Wheat Tour stop on Wednesday of the same week. The report to the Kansas wheat toru scouts is not happening this year because the Kansas tour has been pushed back to ay 17th to the 20th here in 2021.

The Oklahoma wheat tour numbers will be compared to the first USDA estimates of the year next week when the winter wheat crop will be detailed on a state by state basis in the May 12th Crop Production Report.
