Plains Grains Calls Wheat Harvest 28% Complete in Oklahoma- 27% in Texas

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 05:53:38 CDT

Plains Grains Calls Wheat Harvest 28% Complete in Oklahoma- 27% in Texas Thursday evenings during the hard red winter wheat harvest season, Mark Hodges with Plains Grains releases their weekly Wheat Harvest Report. The latest report dated June ninth is out and shows rapid harvest progress this week.


"The 2016 HRW wheat harvest hit high gear in the southern Great Plains this week as more favorable weather conditions for cutting have dominated the past week. However, limited areas of Texas and southwest Oklahoma are still experiencing muddy fields and high humidity restricting cutting in those isolated areas. Texas is now 27% complete with harvest, Oklahoma 28% harvested and Kansas is just now starting to get into full swing with less than 1% harvested.


"Test weights of 61.5-63.0 lbs./bu. (80.9-82.8 kg/hl) are common in almost all areas now reporting. Yields continue to be impressive from Oklahoma extending northward into Kansas with 30-50 bu/ac (2.0-3.4 tons/ha) common.. Elevators in central and north central Oklahoma are reporting long wait lines (in access of 3 hours) at some locations. There has been limited sprout damage reported in isolated areas, however most sprout damage has not been an issue for producers or elevators. General protein reports from most locations, while variable, are mostly averaging slightly above or below 11%. Combines are cutting wheat from central Texas to southern Kansas as harvest continues to move north and west very quickly and should continue to do so if the warm dry weather continues.


"The first 41 HRW samples of an expected 530 are in route to the lab for evaluation and preliminary kernel data should be available for the report next week."
