Harvest of the U.S. spring wheat crop is almost complete with 94 percent harvested. Harvest is 98 percent complete in Minnesota and South Dakota, 93 percent complete in North Dakota and 92 percent complete in Montana. Rains over the weekend likely delayed harvest on the last of the crop. With three-fourths of the spring wheat samples collected and analyzed, quality remains similar to last week. The protein is averaging 14.2 percent (compared to 13.6 percent last year) and average test weight is at 61.5 pounds per bushel (80.9 kg/hl). Vitreous kernel content declined slightly this week to 77 percent, but the crop still grades a No. 1 Dark Northern Spring. Damage is fairly low at 0.2 percent and the average falling number is above 400 seconds.
Durum harvest is 79 percent complete in North Dakota and 87 percent complete in Montana, significantly ahead of last year’s pace. Rains over the weekend will delay harvest progress for a few days. Less than half of the durum samples have been collected and analyzed at the durum quality lab, but so far, quality appears to be high on the early harvested crop. The average protein is 13.9 percent (13.3 for final protein in 2014) and test weight is averaging 60.6 pounds per bushel (78.9 kg/hl). Falling number values have been notably higher than last year and currently the average is 434 seconds.
