Crop Progress, Durum 90% Harvested, Last year...43%

Looking at our harvest progress it is shocking how behind we were last year. This time last year, spring wheat was at 67%, now this year 92% above the 88% 5-year average. Durum which was hit very heavy last year with pre harvest sprout is now 90% harvested, last year 43%. Aside from grasshoppers and wireworms this harvest has been above average. We are very thankful for cooperating weather patterns and the hard-working producers in the treasure state. With harvest close to an end we can put 2020 behind us, as we plant next years crop which could only be a brighter future.
