|Hard red winter harvest is underway in much of the Oklahoma and Texas Panhandles, while other areas in the two states are still drying out from recent rains. Much of Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas have continued to receive moisture, delaying combines from getting into the fields. The number of abandoned acres continues to increase. Last week, harvest in Kansas was at 1% complete compared to the five-year average of 19% and has not had a significant increase this week. Harvest completed in Texas and Oklahoma is well behind the five-year average of 57% and 66%, respectively, and behind the 2006 harvest.|
Data are not available at this time as rain has delayed harvest progress making sample collection difficult.
