You’ll find objective ratings and yield results on all the current wheat varieties for Kansas, Oklahoma, the Texas Panhandle, southern Nebraska, and eastern Colorado. Our ratings reflect the combined judgments of not just one expert, but of the top public and private wheat breeders, agronomists, and plant pathologists from Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Nebraska, and Colorado.

Field Notes

July 2019 Conditions: Wheat harvest across the region is late and delayed for most, lagging far behind the timing of average harvests. Record-setting spring rains, and a long cool growing period led to high yields where fields weren’t flooded. (The warmer and dry conditions typical of harvest are arriving late, as noted by the ambient temperature prediction from NOAA, below.) The bigger picture is that yields and quality are varied across the spectrum. Harvest reports suggest test weights have been steady, though continuous rains have stalled harvest for many. Early in the month, NASS estimated that 58% of the wheat out in the field is in good to excellent condition. About 27% is rated as good with 15% in poor to very poor.
