    Dennis1 started wheat harvest this afternoon, the latest starting date in my memory, and those history readers, not finding anything this late. The thing is, we have still been harvesting
    this time of year, but very few times, and yes, it was because of WATER, still better than dust!

    This is day 9 of the Kansas Wheat Harvest Reports, brought to you by the Kansas Wheat Commission, Kansas Association of Wheat Growers and the Kansas Grain and Feed Association.
    Jerald Kemmerer, of Pride Ag Resources in Ford County, says that they are about 80-85% done with wheat harvest this year. With good looking tests weights and sporadic yields, they are still pleased with the wheat that they are cutting. "If mother nature would work with us, we could wrap up harvest this weekend," says Kemmerer.
    John Lightcap, of Offerle Coop Grain & Supply Co in Edwards County, said their wheat harvest is coming to an end for the year as long as the rain stays away. Lightcap says that he is pleased with the protein and test weight numbers that he is seeing in their crop. Harvesting at 3 different locations, they are seeing better protein numbers in northern fields. Being about 93% done with harvest, Lightcap believes that if the weather holds out they should be able to wrap up wheat harvest within the next four to five days.
    Frontier Ag Inc. in Graham County is just getting the ball rolling with wheat harvest. Although the area is typically done by now, local farmers are just getting a good start this week. With the wheat that they have cut, they are seeing good test weights and average protein levels. They are hoping to continue on with wheat harvest and its above average yields as the week progresses.

          This is day 10 of the Kansas Wheat Harvest Reports, brought to you by the Kansas Wheat Commission, Kansas Association of Wheat Growers and the Kansas Grain and Feed Association.

          With dry weather in northwest Kansas this week, many farmers in the area are finally getting to start harvesting their first fields of the 2019 crop. Yields are above average and while most of the state is seeing below average protein, there are pockets of protein in several areas.

          According to USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service, Kansas winter wheat production is forecast at 330 million bushels, up 19 percent from last year. Average yield is forecast at 50 bushels per acre, up 12 bushels from 2018. Area to be harvested for grain is estimated at 6.60 million acres, down 10 percent from a year ago.

          Casey Andersen, a 4th generation farmer in Gove County south of Oakley, reports that his family got started with harvest on July 8, the latest start that he or his dad can remember.

          Yields are above average due to rain and the cool, wet fill period. He said, "It has been an excellent year for wheat."

          He has about two weeks of harvest left, and Oakley CL is a variety that has been performing well on his farm. The main issue they have had this year is some lodging due to the excessive moisture.

          Andersen reports test weights of 63-64 pounds on Oakley CL, and proteins ranging from 10.5 to 11.5%.

          Jennifer Princ of Midway Coop Association in Luray reports that they took their first load of wheat in on June 26, their latest start since 1996. They are 90-95% complete with harvest in their area.

          She said yields in their area have ranged from 18 to 104, with a strong correlation between planting date and yield. The overall average yield for their farmers is 50-60 bushels per acre. Princ said test weights have averaged 61.2 pounds per bushel, and protein average is 12.04%.

            Glad to hear my wheat is going to average 50 bu. to the acre. That last field must be going to be really great to pull my average up. Maybe it's all those marestail that's obscuring the wheat from view.

              Goooolllllyy ggee...same here! NOT finding what we have heard by the news media, including ag sector, the best may be still to come, but very disappointed up to now...and
              planting date can be shoved up Princ's back side, NOT here anyway, we finished the first planted yesterday, don't have scale tickets, but will be sub 20/A, and 3 weeks later
              doing better. There is NO root system in what we have looked at...AND planting date has nothing to do with maturity, or dry down for harvest. Throw everything at it including
              a kitchen sink if you want a yield, just don't tell the banker it isn't going to be good everywhere..

                This is day 11 of the Kansas Wheat Harvest Reports, brought to you by the Kansas Wheat Commission, Kansas Association of Wheat Growers and the Kansas Grain and Feed Association.
                The hot, dry weekend weather was just what farmers needed to make some excellent progress on wheat harvest in Kansas.

                Mike McClellan, who farms in Rooks County, is wrapping up his wheat harvest on Monday. Their harvest started on July 1, and they have seen good yields and test weights, but lower than average protein levels.

                "We've had a really good harvest run this year," said McClellan. "We're pretty happy with the yields. No complaints here." He added, "We're ready to wrap it up."

                McClellan reports that the area is about 80-90% finished with wheat harvest.

                "We've been pleasantly surprised on some fields, and disappointed on others," he said. Yields have ranged from 20 on a field with hail damage to 80s on his best wheat. Test weights have remained over 60 pounds per bushel, and his proteins have been lower than average, which he partially attributes to the fact that they were late getting nitrogen on because of the moisture. He said he has neighbors who have gotten as high as 12s on protein.

                Wheat harvest for Lisa Schemm, who farms in Wallace and Logan counties, got into full swing on July 10. They had started cutting on July 4, but rains kept them out of the fields until last week. A normal start date for them is June 25. A severe storm on June 22 hit some of their wheat and corn hard with hail.

                Schemm reports that they are now a little over half done with harvest. She says that yields are above average, and test weights have remained well above 60, ranging from 62-63. Areas that had to be replanted aren't yielding as well, so planting date has definitely had an effect on yields. Their protein levels have been coming in about 10.5%.

                Schemm says the Kansas Wheat Alliance variety Kanmark has been performing well for them this year. She says morale is a little higher in their area, with the excellent yields and a slightly higher wheat price. Overall, wheat harvest is going well; it's just behind schedule. She hopes to wrap up by the end of the week.

                Brian Linin, a farmer from Goodland in Sherman County, started his harvest on July 8, and they've been rolling ever since. His wheat is yielding quite a bit above average, ranging from 70 bushels per acre and up. Test weights are 61.5 to 62 pounds per bushel, and proteins are ranging from 11.5 to 13%.

                Linin says this is an above average year, with good quality wheat and good kernel size. He reports that he has about 1,200 acres left to cut, so their harvest will last about another week. The WestBred variety WB-Grainfield and a WB-Grainfield/PlainsGold Langin blend are performing well for him.

                  One hour of weeds and flooded creek bottom to chew through and wheat harvest 2019 will be finished here. Good riddance. Had two farms that were planted early that were good. Still didn't have any 60lb, but 59 for the most part. Those two yielded 59 and 63. Got on 78lbs. of N as urea. Plan was to go back with some finesse and a small shot of 28% a little latter but it never happened. Got too wet and didn't want to track it. No fungicide so was pretty happy with those yields vs. inputs. The 59 bu. farm hadn't even had any starter fert. at planting time. Had planted that at 1 bu. per acre with 2 lbs. of turnips just for a cover until spring. Soybean ground there was wet and late for wheat planting, so left the cover for seed. The rest of the wheat wasn't too good. Was planted Oct.30-Nov2. 30-35 bu. will catch it. Didn't get any finesse on that stuff either and marestail was bad in spots. Hindsight, should have killed it and planted row crop but already had more row crop than I wanted and it was a struggle to get that all planted. As the old saying goes, maybe next year.
