Harvest Summary of HRW - August 18th, 2017

The 2017 US HRW wheat harvest is quickly winding down with very few acres yet to be cut in the northern and northwestern US. All states currently harvesting will be wrapping up within the next week to 10 days. The only remaining states that are actively harvesting HRW wheat are North Dakota (87% complete), Montana (99% complete) and Washington, Oregon and Idaho with (95%, 98% and 90%) respectively left to cut.

There are 466 samples now in the lab (and a revised projection of 500 vs 530 total samples) representing all production areas of HRW wheat in the US. There continue to be many similarities between the 2016 crop and the 2017 crop including kernel characteristics, dough functionality and baking parameters. With 93% of HRW samples now in the lab the overall average test weight this week is 60.6 lb/bu (79.7 kg/hl) comparable to the final overall test weight last year of 60.7 lb/bu (79.8 kg/hl). Thousand Kernel Weight also increased by 0.3 grams this week to 31.0 grams this is comparable to last year’s 31.9 grams and significantly higher than the 5-year average of 29.4 grams. Protein also increased slightly this week to 11.5% as comparted to 11.2% last year. All other kernel characteristics remained the same or only changed slightly this week.

All data presented are simple averages of all samples tested and are not weighted for production. A final summary of data in mid to late September will contain weighted data and an overall analysis of the crop.
