WASDE and Crop Production Analysis from OSU’s Kim Anderson

Listen to Kim Anderson talk about the latest in the crop markets and more.

This week on SUNUP is Oklahoma State University Extension grain market economist Kim Anderson. During this week’s edition, Anderson talks about the latest WASDE report , USDA Crop Production, and an update on crop prices.

“U.S. wheat production was projected to be 1.88 million bushels compared to 1.81 last year an average of 1.89,” Anderson said. “World wheat production was projected to be 29.1 billion bushels, which is a near record. It was 28.9 last year and your average is 28 million.”

Winter wheat production for the U.S. is forecast at 1.29 billion bushels, up 1 percent from the May 1 forecast and up 4 percent from 2023. As of June 1, the United States yield is forecast at 51.4 bushels per acre, up 0.7 bushels from last month and up 0.8 bushels from last year’s average yield of 50.6 bushels per acre.

“You have really got average U.S. wheat, above average world wheat production and below average or right at average hard red winter wheat,” Anderson said. “The important numbers for wheat are the stocks to use ratios. If you look at U.S. wheat for ’24 and ’25, it is projected to be 39.4 percent. It was 37.5 last year and the average is 40.8.”
