Oklahoma Wheat Harvest Moving Forward in Most Parts of Southern Oklahoma, Producers in Central Regions Hoping to Start Soon The 2021 wheat harvest is on the move in most areas of Southwest, Oklahoma. Some places around the Frederick region have been slowed due to heavier rains, but producers are hopeful they will start getting back in fields later tonight or tomorrow. A large portion of Tillman County received to 3 inches of rain late Sunday evening and early Monday morning. In other parts of Comanche and Cotton counties where harvest has resumed, test weights have dropped slightly but are still favorable coming in at 60 lbs./bu. or higher. Other regions in Kiowa, Washita, and Caddo counties are also reporting extremely favorable test weights ranging from 62 to 63 lbs/bu. for the most part with a few being reported as high as 65.5 lbs./bu. Yields in most regions where harvest is being reported are coming in favorable across Southwest Oklahoma. They are ranging from the mid 30s to the mid 60s depending on climate, rainfall and management systems. We have had a report of one load of wheat being taken in at Clinton and harvest has also started with wheat being taken in at Sentinel, Rocky, Cordell and Apache.   Producers have been test cutting East of Okarche and South of Kingfisher where harvest usually leap frogs over Grady and Canadian counties, but as of today, moisture ranges on test cuttings have been reported at 15.5% to 17.4% in the Kingfisher/Canadian county region. With the predicted forecast of warmer temperatures, producers are hoping they will get into the fields in this area late this afternoon. Proteins being reported in Southwest, Oklahoma are varying depending on locations, environment and producer management. Regional averages from Southern Oklahoma are currently holding steady at 11.3% to 11.6% based off early reports.
