Kansas Wheat Harvest Day 5

Steven Rains - July 2, 2019 7:06 pm

This is day 5 of the Kansas Wheat Harvest Reports, brought to you by the Kansas Wheat Commission, Kansas Association of Wheat Growers and the Kansas Grain and Feed Association.

 

It’s the tale of two crops during the 2019 Kansas wheat harvest as some pockets of harvested acres are seeing above average yields and test weights while other areas are battling drowned acres, severe lodging, weed pressure and on top of it all, low yields. Combines are continuing to roll northward as some are anxious to start (while others are anxious to finish) before the Fourth of July celebrations.
Jeff Boyd at the Garden City Coop reported their harvest started up late last week and local famers are making progress through the hot and dry days. The proteins are less than average, but their yields have been ranging between 70-80 bushels per acre with an average test weight of 63 pounds per bushel. If the weather holds up, they should have a little over a week left of harvest, so let’s hope Mother Nature keeps the rain away for a while!
