Texas Wheat Harvest Reaches Fifty Percent Done- Oklahoma Now Stands Eighty One Percent Complete According to Plains Grains

Thu, 07 Jun 2012 22:28:24 CDT

Texas Wheat Harvest Reaches Fifty Percent Done- Oklahoma Now Stands Eighty One Percent Complete According to Plains Grains According to Plains Grains, Incorporated, the 2012 Hard Red Winter wheat harvest continues to roll despite rain across a wide area of the southern and central Great Plains over the past several days. Temperatures have also moderated adding to the slow dry down in those areas that received the moisture. Texas is now just short of 50% complete with harvest on a state wide basis, now cutting wheat from Amarillo north to the Oklahoma line and south past Lubbock (this area is nearing 30% complete).


Oklahoma producers were only able to reduce the remaining 25% yet to be cut in that state at the start of the week to 19% left (81% complete) at this writing. There is still a significant amount of irrigated wheat in the Oklahoma Panhandle that will need a few more days to mature and dry down.


Kansas progress was also slowed this week due to rain and likely be back into full swing by the weekend. One third of the Kansas crop has now been harvested this year, according to Plains Grains.


Nebraska and Colorado have both done test cutting, but neither are doing any large scale harvesting as of this report.


Protein took a big jump this week (now 12.4% overall average) as data is now being received from samples submitted from southern and western Kansas. Test weights dropped slightly, but are still well above 60 pounds per bushel. Dockage and total defects dropped this week back to 0.52% and 1.8% respectively.
