Harvest Report - August 12, 2011
SRW
The final SRW report was issued on August 5, 2011. Compared to 2010, data for all areas sampled shows equivalent wheat protein, flour ash, bake volume and cookie spread value. The samples had a slight increase in laboratory milling yield and a very slight increase in farinograph absorption. The samples from the East Coast (Virginia, North Carolina and Maryland) had a decrease of 0.5% wheat protein and very similar results for flour ash and bread volume. The cookie spread value increased slightly, and there was a 2% increase in milling yield. The Gulf exportable states had equivalent wheat protein content, flour ash, and bread volume to last year. Milling yield and farinograph absorption increased just slightly, and cookie spread value declined slightly this year.
