Combines have been making rounds in parts of Texas – and combines in other states will do the same as spring becomes summer and summer becomes fall.
The 2023 U.S. wheat harvest season has arrived.
U.S. Wheat Associates (USW) started publishing its weekly harvest report for marketing year 2023/24 on Friday, May 19, 2023. USW Harvest Reports are published every Friday afternoon throughout the season with updates and comments on harvest progress, crop conditions and current crop quality for hard red winter (HRW), soft red winter (SRW), hard red spring (HRS), soft white (SW) and durum wheat.
While U.S. farmers like to use it as a tool to monitor the crop and harvest progress around the country, the weekly Harvest Report is also a key component of USW’s international technical and marketing programs. It is a resource that helps customers understand how the crop situation may affect basis values and export prices. USW’s overseas offices share the report with their market contacts and use it as a key resource in meetings and for answering inquiries. Several USW offices publish the report in the local language.
Anyone may subscribe to receive the Harvest Report directly to their email inbox by filling out a quick form found at this link.
USW includes links in the email to additional wheat condition and grading information, including the U.S. Drought Monitor, USDA/NASS Crop Progress and National Wheat Statistics, the official FGIS wheat grade standards, and USDA’s World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates report. Harvest Reports are also posted online on the USW website here.
