Final Harvest Report from the Oklahoma Wheat Commission for 2018 Shows Only the Panhandle and North Central Have Wheat to Combine

Wed, 04 Jul 2018 17:36:30 CDT

Final Harvest Report from the Oklahoma Wheat Commission for 2018 Shows Only the Panhandle and  North Central  Have Wheat to Combine The following is the final wheat harvest report of the season to be released by the Oklahoma Wheat Commission:


"Despite the scattered rains across parts of Northern Oklahoma this week, harvest progressed in most areas. Rainfall in the Panhandle region was limited and this allowed harvesters to get a majority of the irrigated wheat out of the fields. It is reported across the Panhandle and in North Central Oklahoma that approximately 5% of the crop is left in the field to harvest.

"In Northern Oklahoma the issue now is muddy fields, but producers are hopeful they will get back in these areas by the end of the weekend to finish this 2018 season. Test weights declined in Northern Oklahoma this past couple weeks with all the moisture. Most elevators are reporting that since the majority of the crop was harvested before the rains, overall it is not going to impact the final averages. Grain quality for the 2018 wheat crop across Oklahoma will be favorable with high test weights and high proteins. Test weights on average will range from 60 to 62 lbs./bu., with reports on protein running 12.5 to 13%.   

"While quality will be high, the amount USDA currently estimates the Oklahoma Wheat crop to be forecasted at is 52 million bushels, down 47 percent from last year. Yield per acre is expected at 26 bushels, with 2 million acres that will be harvested. This will be the last harvest report published by the Oklahoma Wheat Commission for the 2018 season."
