Harvest of the 2014 HRW crop is moving at an extremely slow pace with only limited cutting in central and north Texas and extreme southern Oklahoma being reported. This is following widespread rain showers over that same area last Friday night. Showers have continued, but on a much more scattered basis as the week progressed. Barring any further moisture most areas that had begun harvest will be cutting again over the weekend.
Anecdotal reports from grain receiving facilities in north Texas and southern Oklahoma indicate test weights are mostly 57 lbs./bu. to 59 lbs./bu. (75.0 kg/hl to 77.6 kg/hl), while moisture is averaging just over 12% and protein being reported from 11% to over 17% with the majority being 12.5% to 13.5% . This information is based on an extremely small sample area/number and will change as harvest gets into full swing.
Sample collection will begin this weekend with delivery to the lab late Monday, this should allow time for at least some preliminary data to be available in next week’s report.
