Winter wheat crop may see drop of 14 percent
The U.S. Department of Agriculture has forecasted this month that South Dakota’s winter wheat crop could total 56.3 million bushels, a 14 percent drop from the winter wheat harvest in 2005.

The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported that under current conditions the state’s winter wheat production will drop by about 9.3 million bushels from the 65.6 million bushels harvested during 2005.

The staff at the NASS’s Sioux Falls

office has forecasted that the average yield will stand at 45 bushels an acre, one bushel higher than last year.

The total amount of planted winter wheat acres is estimated at 1.35 million acres this year, about 200,000 fewer planted acres than during 2005. The current total planted acreage in South Dakota is 13 percent lower than last year.

The NASS staff forecasts that farmers will harvest about 1.25 million acres of winter wheat, about 240,000 fewer acres than during 2005.

Field reports indicate that 12 percent of the state’s winter wheat crop is in excellent condition and another 47 percent of the winter wheat is considered in good condition. Another 29 percent of the winter wheat fields are considered in fair condition, while 11 percent are judged poor and 1 percent is ranked very poor.

At the start of May, the NASS staff reported that on-farm hay stocks in South Dakota were reported at 2.14 million tons, up 2 percent from May 2005.

The amount of hay fed from Dec. 1, 2005, to May 1, 2006, was estimated at 5.8 million tons, up 20 percent from the same time period last year.
