Harvest Summary of HRW - August 10th, 2012

The 2012 HRW wheat harvest continues to be focused on Montana and the Pacific Northwest. Montana is now 58% complete with harvest of HRW. There continue to be yields reported in the range of 20 bushel per acre to 25 bushel per acre in the southeastern area to 40 bushel per acre and 50 bushel per acre yields being reported further north. Test weights are still ranging from 57 lbs/bu to 62 lbs/bu and very good protein reports. Protein ranges in the southeast are from 14% to 16%, with most other areas reporting well above 12%. The exception has been the central part of the state where protein continues to be more variable.

The PNW is now 48% complete with harvest overall (Oregon 58%, Washington 44% and Idaho 41%). The majority of harvest has been in the southern half in each of the 3 states of Washington, Oregon and Idaho. The southwestern areas of Idaho are now winding down with HRW harvest while the northern areas are just getting started. Early reports out of southeastern Idaho show yields well below average. Yields in Washington and Oregon continue to average to above average as is quality.

Again, there was no change in kernel data this week and simple averages for dough functionality continued to remain stable with almost all parameters being well within the 5-year average and little change from last week.
