Wheat forecast up 3 percent from 2004
The U.S. yield was forecast at 44.1 bushels per acre, down 1.3 bushels from the previous forecast. Grain area totals 35.1 million acres, unchanged from May 1.

Kansas production was forecast to be 384 million bushels. The yield expected at 40.0 bushels was down four bushels from May 1 but up three bushels from the 2004 harvest.

Nebraska's 2005 winter wheat crop was forecast at 73.1 million bushels, down 4 percent from a month ago but up 20 percent from last year's crop.

Average yield is forecast at 43 bushels per acre, down 2 bushels from last month but 6 bushels greater than last year and 3 bushels above the 10-year average.

In the major wheat growing areas, as of May 29, topsoil moisture supplies were rated mostly adequate with subsoil moisture supplies mostly adequate to short. Wheat crop condition was rated 39 percent good or excellent with development at a near normal pace of 64 percent headed. Insect pressure has been light, however, wheat diseases were impacting some fields.

Mark Harris, director of Nebraska Ag Statistics Service, said, "Above normal head counts coupled with precipitation at the end of May were expected to boost the 2005 crop yield above year ago levels."

As of June 13, 84 percent of the wheat in Kansas was turning, compared with 97 percent last year and 89 percent for the 5-year average. Twenty-three percent of the wheat was ripe, 35 points behind last year and 14 points behind the 5-year average. One percent of the wheat had been harvested, 12 points behind last year and 6 points behind the 5-year average.

Wheat condition was rated 4 percent very poor, 18 percent poor, 39 percent fair, 34 percent good, and 5 percent excellent.

Disease reports indicate 39 percent with no presence, 34 percent with light presence, 20 percent with moderate presence, and 7 percent with severe presence.

Wheat conditions in Nebraska remained stable and rated 7 percent very poor, 16 poor, 33 fair, 36 good, and 8 excellent. Fields were reported to be 93 percent headed, behind last year at 98 but near the average at 92. Twenty percent of the fields were reported as turning color, well behind last year at 52 and the average at 37.
