U.S. Wheat Associates' Weekly Harvest Report (July 16): Harvest 38% Complete in Sampled States

Despite delays due to rain and humidity, HRW harvest is 38% complete in sampled states, with 266 samples in the lab for testing.

The SRW harvest is 90% complete and sample collection has ended, according to the U.S. Wheat Associates' July 16 Weekly Harvest Report.

The PNW continues to trend hot and dry as harvest picks up pace; the first SW samples are being delivered to the lab this week.

The HRS crop continues to mature at a faster than normal pace as the region struggles with prolonged drought.

The northern durum growing region also needs rain.

USDA estimates winter wheat production at 1.36 billion bushels (37.1 MMT), an increase of 16% from last year and up 4% from June; spring wheat production is estimated at 345 million bushels (9.4 MMT), a 41% decrease from 2020; and durum production is forecast at 37.2 million bushels (1.0 MMT), a 46% decrease from last year.
