USDA Ups Oklahoma Wheat Crop Production by Ten Percent in July Estimate Based on Record Yield of 42 Bushels Per Acre The USDA July 2020 Crop Production Report showed a smaller national winter what crop as of July first- versus the numbers that were released on June First by NASS- however- Oklahoma went against that trend as the July first report found more than ten million bushels more than was reported in the June 2020 estimate, based on a record yield for the state of 42 bushels per acre.

As of July 1- Oklahoma has a 2020 wheat crop of 113.4 million bushels, based on that record 42 bushels per acre yield on 2.7 million harvested acres- 2020 marks the second year in a row that the average yield in the state has hit at least forty bushels per acre. The 2019 forty bushel per acre mark is the previous record. The 113.4 million bushels is 13 percent above the ten year Oklahoma average annual production totals.

The 2020 Kansas wheat crop was trimmed in the July report by four percent to 307.2 million bushels on 48 bushels per acre average yield- while the Texas crop fell from June to July by 16 percent to 67.2 million bushels on a yield of 32 bushels per acre.

Kansas easily remains the leading winter wheat producing state while Washington state is the second largest producing winter wheat producer at 122 million bushels with Oklahoma once again the third highest winter wheat producer in the US.

Nationally- Winter wheat production is forecast at 1.22 billion bushels, down 4 percent from the June1 forecast and down 7 percent from 2019. As of July1, the UnitedStates yield is forecast at 52.0 bushels per acre, down 0.1 bushel from last month and down 1.6 bushels from last year’s average yield of 53.6 bushels per acre. The area expected to be harvested for grain or seed totals 23.4 million acres, unchanged from the Acreage report released on June30, 2020, but down 4 percent from last year.
