Harvest Report - September 3, 2010
HRS
Harvest progress has slowed this week because of rain showers in the Hard Red Spring wheat growing region. Approximately 64% of the spring wheat samples have been collected and analyzed for quality. Sample collection is complete in South Dakota, South Central and South Western North Dakota, and should be completed in Minnesota by the end of the week. The falling number average is 394 seconds indicating a sound wheat crop. Shrunken and broken kernels are up slightly this week but equal to last year.
