USDA meteorologist Brad Rippey gives us an update on spring and winter wheat. Spring wheat harvest. 82 percent of the crop has been cut. That is five percentage points behind the five year average, but well ahead of last year's sixty six percent. On the same day, we did have a delayed crop. But with the weather generally dry and hot across the northwest in recent days, we have seen some rapid progress and we see South Dakota currently leading. Ninety seven percent of the spring wheat acreage harvested. That's ahead of the five year average of ninety five percent. We have our first look at winter wheat planting for the 2020-2021crop and the overall planting number for winter wheat. Five percent of the intended acreage has been planted. That is ahead of the five year average of three percent and well ahead of last year's one percent. Key states, Washington and Colorado have planted more than five percent of their intended acreage. Washington state leads the nation 32 percent planted. Five year average is just 17 percent. And for the entire period, it was extremely hot and dry across the Northwest. Great for planting, but of course, moisture needed for germination and establishment. Colorado also dealing with drought, 17 percent of the winter wheat planted, well ahead of the five year average of seven percent. The weather has taken a big turn in Colorado. We've gone from record setting heat to snow, rain, wind and cold.
