The U.S. winter wheat harvest is approaching 60% complete as combines are running in drier areas of the Plains.
Harvest of a larger SRW crop is almost complete, and all samples have been tested.
With above-normal temperatures and very little rain in South Dakota, North Dakota, and Montana, the HRS crop conditions declined again this week.
Harvest of winter SW is progressing well ahead of normal in the dry Pacific Northwest.
Durum conditions are slightly better than HRS but remains drought- and heat-stressed.
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.
