Wheat Outlook

  • July 25, 2021 – The Southern High Plains are wrapping up the 2021 wheat year with much improved moisture conditions. Spring wheat ratings fell again last week with harvest just around the corner.
  • July 16, 2021 – Production numbers in the Crop Production Report shook up the July WASDE for wheat. The U.S. all-wheat yield was down 4.9 bushels even as the U.S. hard red winter wheat crop got bigger on a yield increase. The spring wheat yield estimate is the lowest in 20 years.
  • June 30, 2021 – The numbers for wheat came in close to pre-report trade expectations in today’s reports from USDA, acres a little higher and stocks slightly lower. Compared to 2020, all wheat acres are up 2.4 million to 46.743. At 5.6 million, Texas wheat acres are the highest since 2015.
  • June 24, 2021 – The U.S. wheat harvest got back up to the long-term average level of completion this week. The Southern High Plains are still behind normal. Wheat rated good and excellent in the Southern Plains held steady while spring wheat in the same categories dropped ten points.
