The Texas hard red winter (HRW) wheat crop is now 25% harvested, those acres are predominately in southern half of the state, according to the June 11 Plains Grains, Inc. HRW Harvest Report.
Harvested acres remain behind the five-year average of 40% by this date with progress moving very slowly as rain, heavy overcast skies, below normal temperatures, and high humidity are providing a significant impediment to harvesting a largely mature crop.
As noted in last week's report, signs of freeze damage continue to be observed in both Texas and Oklahoma.
Oklahoma, (now 9% complete with harvest) is also significantly behind the five-year average of 17% harvested by this date, continues on the Oklahoma/Texas border into the southwestern one-quarter of the state and is also experiencing problems getting harvest started due to the same types of weather issues as in Texas.
