    Editor's Note: This is the final Kansas Wheat Harvest Report for the 2019 crop.




    For audio file, please visit kansaswheat.org.

    This is day 16, the final day of the 2019 Kansas Wheat Harvest Reports, brought to you by the Kansas Wheat Commission, Kansas Association of Wheat Growers and the Kansas Grain and Feed Association.
    Wheat harvest has essentially wrapped up in Kansas with last week's hot dry weather.
    According to the USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service, Kansas winter wheat harvest is 96 percent complete, near 100 last year and 98 for the five-year average.
    Erik Lange, Senior Vice President and chief operating officer, MKC, says their more than 40 locations across Kansas have taken in about two-thirds of their 5-year average on bushels, due to reduced acres because of the wet conditions last fall. MKC is located in 24 counties across Kansas, from Seward County in the southwest to Sumner County in south central to Pottawatomie County in the north east.
    Lange reported that overall, harvest was about 2 to 2 ½ weeks later than normal statewide but a little less delayed in the west. He said yields varied widely across the state.
    In south central counties, yields were below average, and in central counties, yields were quite a bit lower than normal, due to rain. Further to the north and east, there were good yields in areas, but not in the low lying areas. He said that in southwest Kansas, this year's harvest was some of the best wheat in years.
    Test weights in the trade territory ranged from average to above average in most locations. There were a few places in central and south central Kansas that got some rains on mature wheat where test weights were slightly below average.
    Proteins also varied by location. In the west, Lange reported that proteins were well below average, ranging from 10 ½ to 11 ½ percent, with spotted areas of 12s. In central and south central Kansas, proteins ranged from 10 ½ to 12 percent, which is above a normal average of 10 ½ to 11 percent.
    Lange reported that most of harvest is wrapped up, but they are still waiting on mudholes. He said, "Spring was a battle. We appreciate the rain, but timing could have been better."
    He said acres that were planted late were not as good as the early planted. He predicts that acres may go up slightly in MKC's trade territory this fall, but he is skeptical on how many acres that is, saying "If corn and beans come off in a timely manner, there may be some more wheat planted this fall. Weather played such a factor in acreage this year."
    Eric Sperber, GM/CEO at Cornerstone Ag, in Colby, said this was "one of the quickest harvests we've had in a long time," reporting that they took in 95% of their receipts between July 10-19.
    Sperber said this year's harvest was about 1 ½ to 2 weeks late. They took their first load of wheat on July 3; their previous latest start date was July 1.
    He said that yields were excellent in northwest Kansas, with customers calling it their "best crop ever" and a "once in a lifetime crop." Test weights were also very good, averaging 61.5 to 62 pounds per bushel. He reports that the proteins were the lowest average he has seen in his 15 years with Cornerstone, averaging 10.7 percent.
    Sperber said they took in more hard white wheat this year than in the previous three years combined. He said the majority of the hard white wheat was the Kansas Wheat Alliance variety Joe, and that farmers were pleased with Joe. Some farmers reported that they planted Joe last fall because of concerns about wheat streak mosaic virus and its resistance to the disease.
    Acres in the area were largely unchanged from the past couple years, but still some of the lowest acres in recent history. Sperber reports that they took in about 125 percent of normal receipts, due to the excellent yields.
    "It was an excellent harvest," he said. "It was about the fifth best total receipts in the 15 years I've been here, on some of the lowest acres."

    This is day 15 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.
    Fields of wheat that are not yet harvested are fewer and farther between as harvest is wrapping up. Most farmers will be done by this weekend or the beginning of next week.
    Roger Snodgrass, of McDougal-Sager & Snodgrass Grain Inc., in Rawlins County, reports that they are about 80% done with this year's wheat harvest. Snodgrass says they missed out on most of the big rains this year and did not get too much hail. While they are seeing lower protein levels, they are also seeing above average yields and good test weights.
    "Most of the guys are smiling around here and are happy with the crop that we are seeing," says Snodgrass.
    Theron Haresnape, a farmer near Lebanon in Smith County, says that wheat harvest is finally winding down. He said they didn't receive any hail in their area, just rain showers.
    Haresnape said, "It has been a pretty good year. The biggest rain we had all spring was 2.5 inches."
    With above average yields and protein levels in the area between 11.5 and 12%, Haresnape is pleased with this year's wheat harvest. Haresnape says if the weather cooperates, they plan to increase acreage in the fall; however, he will still be planting 25-30% less than 'normal.'

    Day 14, Kansas Wheat Harvest Report[/TD]

    For audio file, please visit kansaswheat.org.




    This is day 14 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.
    About two weeks behind schedule, wheat harvest in Kansas is progressing quickly with high temperatures this week about 100°F in northwest Kansas.
    According to Larry Glenn, of Frontier AG Inc. in Quinter in Gove County, harvest is 85-90% complete in the area. Glenn reported that yields are above average in the western third of the state. Harvest was delayed and started out slow, but then moved very quickly.
    Glenn said they started paying protein premiums last year and added protein testers in all locations. Protein is averaging about 10.5%.
    Storage is an issue in the area, with the bunker in Quinter full. They are getting some rail cars in to start moving grain as the elevator space gets tight.
    "We've been blessed with rains in this area," Glenn said, adding that the rains didn't come too much at a time like other areas. While there was some hail, it was spotty and didn't cause widespread damage.
    "We are well above last year on bushels, which was a good year," Glenn said.
    Larry Snow of Heartland Mills in Marienthal in Wichita County, reports that yields are way above average, but proteins are way below, estimating high 10s for most of the organic wheat they buy. Fortunately for the mill, they have been able to source higher protein wheat from other areas in the high plains.
    "There will be a lot of 8s and 9s that would take too much to blend up, so it will end up as organic feed wheat," said Snow. He said that harvest has been about two weeks late and is nearing completion. He added, "Test weights are really good."
    Ken Wood, who farms near Chapman in Dickinson County, wrapped up wheat harvest this last Saturday. Wood said they had good yields that were on higher ground in the fields and some lower yields where water stood for a longer period of time. Wood says they don't test proteins, but they had solid test weight numbers for the year.
    "I was pleased with the outcome that we had this year. It turned out better than we expected," Wood said.

    This is day 13 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.
    Harvest continues to roll through northern Kansas as farmers try to pick up the pace to make up for some lost time. Yields continue to be highly variable throughout the state, with some areas seeing double the county averages, while others are making 25-30 bushels per acre. Pockets of protein continue to be reported in localized areas of the state.
    Lynn Moore, a farmer near Pittsburg, finished wheat harvest about two weeks ago. Moore says they had solid yields throughout harvest, and test weights ranged in the upper 50's.
    "It was unexpected for wheat harvest to go as well as it did, but we are just glad it is done and out of the field," Moore said.
    Dell Princ, of Midway Coop Association in Osborne County, reported that they are in the final stages of their wheat harvest this year.
    "These are some of the best yields we have seen, considering the year we have had," Princ said. With solid test weights and proteins ranging from 11-11.5%, Princ is pleased with this year's harvest.
    Chris Tanner, a farmer near Norton, reported that he began his harvest on July 4th (when they normally finish up) but had to press pause for rains until July 12. He is currently about halfway done. He estimates that this year's county average is in the mid-50s, with some acres seeing upwards of 90 bushels an acre, but others averaging only 25 bushels per acre. Tanner says that fertilized fields are yielding much better, and that proteins in the area are ranging from 10.5-11%. Test weights are 61-63 pounds per bushel. The Syngenta/AgriPro variety Bob Dole is performing very well for Tanner.
    "Weather made it difficult to get wheat drilled, and a lot of guys got it in late," said Tanner. "Spring moisture made it hard to get fertilizer on. Everything has been a fight for us -- calving, spraying, planting and overly saturated soils."

    By Peyton Powell, Kansas Wheat Communications Intern



    This is day 12 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.
    Wheat harvest is wrapping up in central Kansas and in full swing in northwest Kansas.
    According to USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service for the week ending July 14, winter wheat mature was 98 percent. Harvested was 81 percent, behind 98 last year and 95 for the five-year average.
    In Hodgeman County they have completed wheat harvest, finishing off with above average yields and average test weights. They are pleased with the wheat harvest that they had this year. Proteins in the area have ranged from 11-11.5 throughout harvest.
    Chuck Knight from MKC in Marion County, reported that they should be wrapping up harvest on July 16. With test weights coming in with solid numbers and above average yields, Knight says he is pleased with the wheat being harvested this year. Knight says they do not routinely check proteins, but with the one test they did do, it was in the lower 11's.
    Central Valley Ag Cooperative in Lincoln County, reported that they are seeing their final days of wheat harvest for the year, hoping to finish harvest by July 16. With tests weights having solid numbers and average to above average yields, they are pleased with this year's wheat harvest. Their protein levels have been ranging from low to average.

    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.

    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.

    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..

    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.

    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%.

    By Peyton Powell, Kansas Wheat Communications Intern



    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.

    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!

    crop conditions increase 1% in corn and go down 2% for beans,both remain at historically low levels,corn rating for In,Ill,ohio actually went down 3-5 pts,yet markets go down hard over night,basis levels remain at very good levels,big corn deleveries are being stopped by ADM and cargill,all bullish,very little cash corn moving as farmers dont sell a 50 cent break,yesterdays hot dry is replaced by alittle more rain,personally hot dry is what the crop need near term as long as it dosent stick thru pollination
