Plains Grains Calls Oklahoma Wheat Harvest 71% Complete, Texas at 59% and Kansas 23% Harvested

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 21:22:34 CDT

Plains Grains Calls Oklahoma Wheat Harvest 71% Complete, Texas at 59% and Kansas 23% Harvested The latest Wheat Harvest Report for the southern Great Plains has been released by Plains Grains, Inc. In the week since the last report from the group, there has been significant harvest progress made in Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas, while harvest has now begun in Colorado. At the bottom of this story, you can click on the PDF link to review the complete update from Plains Grains, including the results of the first samples that have been tested from the 2016 crop. Here is the text from the report:

"The 2016 HRW wheat harvest is moving rapidly north as hot and mostly dry weather prevail as evidenced by harvest completion in Texas (59% vs 27% last week ), Oklahoma (71% vs 28% last week) and Kansas (23% vs 1% last week). Test cutting is now reported within 50 miles (80 km) of the Nebraska southern border in eastern parts of north central Kansas. Rain and mud continue to be an issue for north and west Texas, southwest Oklahoma and isolated areas of eastern Kansas. Some of the fields in north Texas and southwest Oklahoma may not be harvested due to high water and excessive mud.


"Preliminary testing of 46 samples from north Texas and Oklahoma reflect numerous rain storms on the crop after ripening with test weights lower than expected (below 59.0 lb/ac (77.6 kg/hl)). An additional 23 samples are now in the lab and preliminary testing has begun. Yields from Oklahoma extending northward into Kansas continue to be very good with 30-50 bu/ac (2.0-3.4 tons/ha) still common. Long wait lines are getting shorter, but many elevator locations have been forced to use ground piles at least for short-term storage due to a lack of elevator space (is usually the lowest protein). General wheat protein reports are still averaging just under 11% (the initial 46 samples averaged 10.7%). However, as was reported last week there are beginning to be higher protein reports from the more northern and northwest areas of Oklahoma and west central and southwestern areas of Kansas. It is expected next week's report will show an increase in protein (and test weight)."
