HRW, SRW and SW non-grade and grade data are now final for 2018. Protein, moisture and test weights are all improved over the previous 5-year averages in another No.1 SW wheat crop in 2018. HRS and Durum harvests in the Northern Plains are nearly complete and remaining data from sampling should all be in before the end of September. Both crops are very good with HRS vitreous kernel percentage far above average. The first grade data on durum indicates a No. 1 HAD crop.
