Harvest Report - May 25, 2012
SRW

The SRW harvest has progressed somewhat slower than anticipated with sampling confined to southern Arkansas.  The remaining areas of Arkansas have just begun as has harvesting in the southernmost portion of Missouri.  North Carolina has seen quite a bit of rain this past week, and no harvesting is expected until early next week.  Approximately 15% of the crop has been harvested in Arkansas which is still almost 15% ahead of the five-year average, with 50% of the crop rated good to excellent.  In Missouri, 80% of the crop has turned color which is about three weeks ahead of the normal pace.  No activity has been reported in Kentucky, Illinois or Indiana, but harvest is expected to begin the last week of May or the first week of June in those states.
