Harvest Summary of HRW - August 4th, 2017

The 2017 HRW wheat harvest continued at full pace this week with abundant sunshine and dry winds. Drought conditions still prevail in South Dakota, North Dakota and the eastern wheat producing areas of Montana. South Dakota is all but finished with harvest, now at 95% complete. Montana is still harvesting in the central and western production areas, but now surpassing the ¾ done mark on a statewide basis. Protein reports remain good in the areas still harvesting ranging from 12% to 13% and are coupled with good grain yields. As was pointed out last week, lack of moisture and hot temperatures during grain development significantly reduced yields and harvested acres in eastern Montana, North Dakota and South Dakota. Wyoming is now 95% complete with harvest and winding down while the Pacific Northwest (Washington, Oregon and Idaho) continues to roll at full speed as hot dry winds and hot temperatures have dominated that region of the U.S.

There are now 424 samples in the lab for evaluation of an expected 530 and representing Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Wyoming, Colorado, Nebraska, South Dakota, Montana and portions of the Pacific Northwest. Harvest in all HRW wheat producing areas of the U.S. should be winding down over the next couple of weeks. Overall test weight moved up again this week from 60.3 lb/bu (79.3 kg/hl) to 60.4 lb/bu (79.5 kg/hl). Overall protein increased slightly this week to 11.4%, up from 11.3% last week. Thousand Kernel Weight (TKW) increased slightly this week to 30.7g, up from 30.6g last week.

All data presented are simple averages of samples tested and are not weighted for production.
