Harvest Report - July 13, 2007
SRW
Early SRW data for western Virginia, now complete, indicate average test weight and 1000 kernel weight are lower this year. Protein and falling number value are similar to 2006 data. However, the late data shows falling number value is much higher this year and average test weight is just slightly higher. Average protein is unchanged from 2006 and average 1000 kernel weight is lower. Late data for eastern Virginia indicate average protein is equal to 2006 results. Test weight average is higher this year and falling number values are significantly higher. Data is similar to the early harvest results.

Early data for western Illinois show average test weight and falling number value are similar to last year. Protein is higher and 1000 kernel weight is lower. Late data indicate average 1000 kernel weight is quite a bit lower this year and average test weight is slightly lower. Protein and falling number value are equal to last year. Average test weight and 1000 kernel weight have decreased from the early harvest results. Late data for eastern Illinois is now complete and show average protein and falling number value are similar to 2006 data. Average test weight is higher this year and 1000 kernel weight is slightly lower. Data is very similar to the early harvest results.

Early data for eastern Missouri is complete and indicate average test weight and 1000 kernel weight are lower this year while average protein is slightly higher. Falling number values are equal to 2006.

Kentucky. Flour data is now complete and there is little change from the 2006 data with the exception of a slightly higher bread volume this year.
Late data for southern Indiana show average moisture is very high for these samples. Average test weight and protein are similar to 2006. Average 1000 kernel weight is higher this year.
