Harvest Summary of HRW - July 13th, 2012

South Dakota and Wyoming are now rapidly approaching the two-thirds complete mark of this 2012 HRW harvest, with rain putting a stop to cutting in Wyoming until two days ago. Yields are still highly variable (20-70) in South Dakota while Wyoming yield reports are ranging from between 20 and 30 bushel per acre. Wyoming test weights have been good and are averaging above 60 pounds per bushel. There have been no protein reports out of Wyoming. The 2012 HRW wheat harvest is now complete in Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas and very close to complete (99%) in Colorado and Nebraska.

Montana is projected to begin HRW harvest in the next 10 days to 2 weeks. Hot (100 degree plus) weather and drought stress has already affected the crop, but over 40 bushel yields with high protein is still being projected.

There have now been 400 samples collected with 353 of those having all testing complete for kernel characteristics (grade and non-grade) with simple average results shown below. As expected average protein dropped while test weight and thousand kernel weights increased. Moisture decreased slightly this week as did overall dockage. With the exception of test weight, other grading factors did not change this week.
