The 2006 soft white wheat harvest is essentially finished in Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. This week’s SW samples mainly consist of 27% from northern Idaho, 22% from southeastern Idaho, 20% from southeastern Washington, and 10% each from north central Oregon and south central Idaho. The cumulative averages show basically the same as last week: US #1 SW grade with test weight at 60.2 lb/bu (79.2 kg/hl), moisture content at 8.9%, protein at 10.5%, and sound falling number value at 335 seconds. There have been range fires in Washington that could delay a small portion of wheat harvest in the region.
