Expectations downgraded for winter wheat crop

June 17, 2014 | 0 comments

MADISON

The crop condition report as of June 1 for Wisconsin's 2014 winter wheat indicates a yield reduction of 520,000 bushels from what was forecast May 1, according to a recent update by the Wisconsin field office of the National Agricultural Statistics Service.

The state's latest outlook calls for total production of 17.94 million bushels from 260,000 harvested acres — an average of 69 bushels per acre. This is down from the May 1 yield forecast of 71 bushels per acre as the statewide average but well above the average yield of 58 bushels in 2013, when 265,000 acres were harvested. If realized, the projected 2014 yield would be 2.57 million bushels more than in 2013.

As of June 1, 65 percent of the state's winter wheat was rated as being in either excellent or good condition. By that date, 14 percent had begun to head.

Across the United States, the predicted production of 1.381 billion bushels is down by 2 percent from the May 1 forecast. This is based on an average yield of 42.4 bushels per acre, down by 0.7 bushel from a month earlier and down by 5 bushels from the average per acre yield of the 2013 crop.

Although the number of acres growers expect to harvest is up by 170,000 from 2013 to 32.572 million, the projection for the nation's crop is down by 10 percent from the more than 1.534 billion bushels in 2013.
