Harvest Summary of HRW - July 12

Harvest of the 2019 HRW wheat crop continues to move quickly through the southern and central Great Plains as heat and drier weather associated with a high pressure system continues to build and expand. Texas is now 97% complete with harvest, with limited areas in far northwest (higher elevation) parts of the state left to cut. Oklahoma is now 99% complete with areas in the far northwest (higher elevation) and northeast (slowed by rain) parts of the state left to harvest.  Kansas is now over 70% harvested with areas in the southern half of the state starting to wind down, while northeast and north central areas of Kansas have moved past the 50% complete mark.  Northwest Kansas is significantly behind the rest of the state with still less than 20% of that area cut as of this report.  Colorado is now 17% harvested with most cutting being in the southeastern areas of the state, but is moving northward quickly into the east central region.  Nebraska has begun harvesting in the southeastern corner of the state at 3% cut.  Oregon has begun limited cutting with 5% now harvested.

A total of 180 samples are now in the lab and in various stages of analysis.  Those 180 samples represent a geographical area ranging from all of Texas, across all of Oklahoma and into the southern half of Kansas.  The test weight average of those samples now averages (1HRW) 60.1 lb/bu (79.1 kg/hl) up from last week’s 59.9 lb/bu (78.8 kg/hl), average dockage is up slightly this week at 0.5% from 0.4%, total defects increased slightly (1.5% last week) to 1.6% this week.  Average protein remained consistent across the 180 samples this week at 11.3%.  A second set of early composited samples made up of sub-samples averaging over 11% protein continue to indicate good protein quality.
