Summary

HRW harvest continues quickly in Montana and the PNW with strong quality indications; this is a very good HRW crop. HRS harvest is about 1/3rd complete and initial sample data shows test weight average of 61.7 lb/bu (81.1 kg/hl) and average protein 14.9% (12% moisture basis). SW harvest continues apace under hot, dry conditions; this is a typically good SW crop with low protein, low moisture and good test weight. The final 2018 Soft Red Winter Crop Report is complete and available online at http://bit.ly/2MlkyEp.
