Harvest Report - September 26, 2008
HRS
Warm, dry weather last week allowed producers to make good harvest progress. HRS harvest is virtually complete and sample collection is complete with a few individual samples still to be analyze. There is little change in quality this week from last week. Some of the samples collected since the recent rain have had slightly lower falling numbers as expected. Approximately 93% of the samples analyzed had a falling number of 350 seconds or higher compared to 97% last year.
