The 2015 HRW wheat harvest continues in high gear or is essentially in the books for nearly all producing states with the exception of Wyoming and North Dakota. North Dakota continues to see precipitation especially in the northern and northeastern parts of the state. Harvest is virtually over in Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas and has been slowed in Colorado and Nebraska due to rain. South Dakota is now 15% complete with harvest with high heat and humidity continuing across the state. Montana (17% complete), Washington (22% complete), Oregon (33% complete) and Idaho (18% complete) are all well ahead normal harvest progress for this date as an abnormally hot and dry spring pushed the crop to early maturity. These same areas are also seeing sporadic rain storms accompanied by hail which has caused crop losses and lodging.
