Harvest Summary of HRW - June 9th, 2017

Harvest of the 2017 HRW wheat crop has crossed the Kansas/Oklahoma line. Limited areas along the southern Kansas border have been harvested within the last two days, but has been slowed again due to high humidity and cloud cover driving the grain moisture up above 14%.

Texas is now 45% harvested, with central and north central parts of the state almost completed. Areas just south of the Oklahoma state line extending 50 miles (80 km) are still battling wet fields and mud and are significantly behind those to the north and south of them (large % of soft red wheat in that area). Oklahoma is now 38% complete with harvest. The southern 1/3 is rapidly winding down with grain delivery points reporting handling only about 50% of normal volume due to the reduction in harvested acres. Central areas of the state are in full swing (if they avoided rain events over the last several days). Far northern parts of the state are just starting in some areas while those, that again, avoided rain showers are starting to wind down. Reported test weights in central and north central Oklahoma continue to be above 60 lbs/bu (78.9 kg/hl) even though rain events are continuing to be an almost daily event.

There are now 65 samples of an expected 530 in the lab (representing central Oklahoma southward). Average protein remains at 10.8% this week, however delivery points in north central Oklahoma suggest a modest potential improvement in protein. Average test weight increased 0.2 lbs. this week to 60.9 lb/bu from 60.7 lb/bu (80.1 kg/hl from 79.8 kg/hl) and was not expected after the rain events over the past week. TKW average, with a limited number of samples tested, is 30.3g and while not as good as last year still exceeds the 5-year average. FN’s were not available at this writing.
