Plains Grains Calls Texas Wheat Harvest 23% Complete- Oklahoma Only Test Cutting Along the Red River

Fri, 04 Jun 2021 05:06:57 EDT

Plains Grains Calls Texas Wheat Harvest 23% Complete- Oklahoma Only Test Cutting Along the Red River On a weekly basis during the wheat harvest season, Plains Grains and their Executive Director Mark Hodges, release a review of harvest progress and the unfolding quality story of the new crop being brought out of the wheat fields in the hard red winter belt found in the heartland of the US.
Here's the latest report released Thursday evening, June 3, 2021.

The Texas HRW wheat crop is now 23% harvested, those acres are predominately in southern half of the state. Harvested acres remain behind 2020 and the 5-year average for this date with progress moving very slowly as rain, heavy overcast skies, below normal temperatures, and high humidity are providing a significant impediment to harvesting a largely mature crop. As noted in last week’s report, signs of freeze damage continue to be observed in both Texas and Oklahoma.

Oklahoma, while doing some “test cutting” on the Oklahoma/Texas border, is also experiencing problems getting harvest started due to the same types of weather issues. Both states are concerned about potential quality issues if current conditions continue much longer. Early yield reports have been generally average to above average (40 bu/ac to 60 bu/ac…2.7 tons/ha to 4.0 tons/ha) with “early” test weight reports averaging 61lbs/bu (80.2 kg/hl).
