Harvest Summary of HRW - FINAL October 14, 2011

The 2011 HRW wheat crop was one of contrast of south vs. north as the Southern Great Plains had very good protein and very good test weight, significantly exceeding the 5-year average on both, but volume was the issue. Texas produced less than half a normal crop, Oklahoma produced just over half a crop and Kansas produced significantly less than their normal average. The reduction in production was due to an ongoing drought and as a result kernel size was smaller than normal, but functionality exceeded most all parameters when comparing to the 5-year averages. In contrast, most areas north of central Kansas all the way to the Pacific Northwest saw not only adequate moisture, but in many cases too much moisture in the spring followed by high temperatures just before maturity stressing the crop in some areas. However, kennel characteristics and functional factors were at or near the 5-year average and no significant issues were encountered. Overall, protein increased significantly as compared to the last 2 years as did virtually all other functionality factors.
