Wheat harvest trickled into the southern border of Kansas around June 5, while making its way through an extended season in Texas and Oklahoma. Daily harvest reports will be published about 6:00 p.m. each evening, Sunday through Thursday.
Wheat harvest in Kansas typically begins in early- to mid-June and is complete by mid-July. It begins in the south central part of the state and moves north and west. Current estimates from USDA/NASS peg the 2016 crop at 393.6 million bushels, with an average yield of 48 bushels per acre. If realized, this would be the highest production since 2003, when Kansas produced a record crop. Because of decreased acreage, production wouldn't rival past records.
