Harvest Report - September 19, 2008
HRS
Hard red spring harvest progress was slowed last week because of rain showers and cool weather. This week's warm, dry weather was more conducive for harvesting and most of the remaining spring wheat crop should be harvested this week. There are no quality changes this week from last week. With 88% of the samples collected, approximately 71% of the samples had a test weight of 60 lb/bu (78.9 kg/hl) or higher compared to 66% last year. Sixty-three percent of the samples analyzed had a protein value of 14% or higher compared to 72% last year. Approximately 59% of the samples analyzed had a thousand kernel weight of 30 grams or higher compared to 55% last year.
