Harvest Summary of HRW - June 5th, 2015

The 2015 HRW wheat harvest is finally just starting to get underway in north Texas through central Oklahoma, but only on the lighter sandy soils. The heavier clay soils remain saturated and harvest on these soils remains on hold. The clay soil in general is where the highest potential for good yields were prior to the heavy rain events. North Texas and SW Oklahoma had been looking at one their best crops in over 5 years prior to excessive rain over the last month (some areas received over 20 inches in the last 30 days). Areas further south in central Texas have been ripe for several weeks, but water logged clay soils there are still keeping most combines out of the field. However, with much warmer temperatures and high winds this week harvest should increase in coverage over the next few days.

Because of the limited amount of wheat harvested it is too early to see any trends in quality, however, most delivery points receiving wheat are encouraged. Very early test weights are reportedly averaging from 57 lb/bu (75.1 kg/hl) to 59 lb/bu (77.6 kg/hl) in Oklahoma, slightly lower in north Texas. Protein percentages being reported are ranging from 10% to 13% (12% mb) and yields ranging from 20 to 50 bushels per acre (1.4 to 3.4 tons/ha). Sprout damage has been very limited at this point, but again all cutting has been on sandy soils on standing wheat.
