Harvest Summary of HRW - May 24th, 2013

Harvest is now in full swing in the southern coastal areas of Texas with approximately 200,000 bushels received (and a few loads have been delivered in the areas of extreme drought stricken north Texas (20,000 bushels)) with an estimated 2% of the crop now harvested.  This is in contrast to the 5 year average of 5% of the crop having been harvested by this date.  Rain, hail and high wind damaged some areas of central and northern Texas with as much as 4 inches of rain being reported along the Texas and Oklahoma border in northeast parts of the state.  Crop development still lags behind the 5 year average by over 20% with harvest projected to start in areas of central Texas by next week (with favorable weather conditions) test samples may be cut this weekend.

Just over 50% of Oklahoma’s crop is now rated poor to very poor as compared to 46% last week.  The Oklahoma crop is now 79% headed which is 19% behind the 5 year average.  The northwestern half of Oklahoma is still generally very dry while most areas in the southeastern half received abundant rainfall over the past 7 days.  Grainfill conditions remain very good (relatively cool temperatures for May and good moisture in the root zone) in those areas of the state not affected earlier by drought or freeze damage. The Oklahoma wheat harvest is still 10 days or more from starting (depending on weather).

The Kansas crop is over 30% behind the 5 year average development stage for this date with 42% of the crop now rated poor to very poor.
