Wheat Outlook

  • June 12, 2020 – The June WASDE showed old crop U.S. wheat ending stocks higher on a small reduction in exports and new crop wheat ending stocks higher on a small increase in production. With these adjustments, U.S. wheat ending stocks are still on a four-year decline.
  • June 5, 2020 – U.S. winter wheat crop condition ratings declined this week, but still above average. Europe and much of southern Russia are experiencing dry conditions. The outlook for the Southern High Plains the next several days is high heat in combination with areas of severe drought.
  • May 29, 2020 – The U.S. winter wheat crop condition index rose 2 points this week and continues to track just above average. However, above normal temperatures and dry conditions in eastern Colorado/western Kansas are featured in the short-term weather hazard outlook.
  • May 22, 2020 – Winter wheat condition ratings were down this week nationally and for Texas. The findings of the Kansas Wheat Tour were production of 284 million bushels and a yield of 44.5 bushels. Noted was the impact of freezing temperatures late this spring and drought, fall and spring.
