Harvest Report - June 12, 2009
HRW
Hard red winter harvest continued across Texas and producers in the Southern Panhandle, near Lubbock, will begin cutting soon. Yields are expected to be low due to continued drought and late-spring freeze damage. Meanwhile, producers near Waco have completed harvest with yields in the low-to-mid thirties. Harvest in the northern region of the Blacklands, north of Dallas, is approximately 50 percent complete, with varied yields and low test weights. Although harvest was making headway, severe storms will slow progress this week. Producers across the Rolling Plains region, near Wichita Falls, are wrapping up harvest with test weights between 58-59 lb/bu (76.4-77.6 kg/hl). Yields have been disappointing, with some fields yielding only 8-10 bushels per acre. Producers in the Northern Panhandle, north of Amarillo, are expected to begin harvest in seven to ten days.
