Harvest Report - September 14, 2012
SRW

The final SRW report was issued on August 3, 2012.  Many commercial mills have begun transitioning to the new crop following the early completion of the SRW harvest.  Generally, millers report that this is the best crop in several years with low moisture and good test weight and thousand kernel weight results.  The new wheat is milling well, yielding a slightly stronger flour.  Depending on origin of the wheat, millers are seeing protein results equal to or slightly below last year, but in line with a typical crop year.  Although the transition to new crop is still in the early stages of transition, millers are receiving positive feedback from customers as they begin baking with the new crop flour.
