OSU's Kim Anderson Comments On Wheat Harvest Progress And Higher Than Expected YieldsThu, 24 Jun 2021 14:01:19 CDT
Oklahoma State University Extension Grains Market Analyst Dr. Kim Anderson talks about what is going on in the Wheat Markets. Dr. Anderson says harvest is progressing relatively well and is approximately halfway complete. This week Dr. Anderson is talking about wheat harvest progress and yields.
Anderson says the yields are good to excellent and test weights are mostly above 60 lbs. He says harvest has made its way to the Oklahoma/Kansas border with some cutting up into central Kansas.
"Nearly 40 percent of the 2021 world wheat crop is harvested, and it is coming in above expectations," Anderson said.
The latest estimate is 29.2 billion bushels which is comparable to the 28.5 billion bushel record last year, he added.
For additional information, Anderson advises reading the Oklahoma Wheat Commission Harvest Report.. To hear more from Dr. Anderson, click or tap below.
