Harvest Report - September 16, 2011
HRW
The 2011 HRW wheat harvest is complete in virtually all areas. The overall protein average is still 12.4% and overall average moisture remains below 11%. These numbers held even with the additional 49 samples tested this week from the northern US where the crop experienced too much moisture throughout most of the growing season.

Dockage remains low in the 2011 HRW crop, while test weight and thousand kernel weights are high when considering the adverse growing conditions experienced in many areas.

The remaining five samples will arrive in the lab on Friday to complete sample collection. Next week’s report will be the last HRW weekly harvest summary for 2011, with a final 2011 overall summary to be issued in October.
