Plains Grains Calls Oklahoma Wheat Harvest 99 Percent Done- Kansas Climbs to 79 Percent Complete

Fri, 06 Jul 2018 12:23:21 CDT

Plains Grains Calls Oklahoma Wheat Harvest 99 Percent Done- Kansas Climbs to 79 Percent Complete Here is the latest hard red winter wheat harvest report from Plains Grains and their Executive Director, Mark Hodges. The southern great plains is nearing the end of the harvest season- and the key take away is that the crop, while smaller than normal, has good test weights and good protein associated with it.




o Texas            87%
o Oklahoma            99%
o Kansas            79%
o Colorado            23%
o Nebraska            11%
o South Dakota              0%
o North Dakota              0%
o Montana              0%
o Washington              0%
o Oregon              4%
o Idaho              0%
o Wyoming              0%


Strong thunderstorms producing heavy rain continue to slow the 2018 HRW wheat harvest, especially in eastern Colorado and northwest Kansas. Moving south to north, (Texas 87% complete and Oklahoma 99% complete), with mainly irrigated fields left to cut. Kansas 79% complete, with the northwest of the state being the only major area left to harvest, but continuing to be inundated with rain. Colorado 23% complete, mostly in the southeastern of the state with the northeast areas of the state dealing with the same rain events plaguing the Kansas harvest. Nebraska 11% complete (mainly southeast areas) and Oregon just beginning at 4% complete.


All states regardless of harvested percentage or rain continue to report good test weight and good protein in this crop. For the states of Texas, Oklahoma and (at least the southeastern of Kansas) the rain has come late enough the overall quality was not affected. Those that were able to get back in the field to start harvesting mid-week this week were reporting no major changes in test weight.


A total of 224 samples are now in the lab for evaluation and represent Texas, Oklahoma and the southeastern of Kansas. The majority of the 58 added samples this week came from northwest Texas, northwest Oklahoma and western/central Kansas. Overall test weight increased this week by 0.1 lb/bu (1.6 kg/hl), and remains a #1 Hard Red Winter, averaging 60.3 lb/bu (79.3 kg/hl). Average protein continues to be very good and (increased 0.1%) this week to 12.8% overall. Test weight and protein are expected to decrease slightly as harvest (and sampling) begin in areas where there was less stress through the growing season and excessive rain fell on a mature crop during the last two weeks. Falling number* below represents only the first 50 samples originating from Texas and Oklahoma.
