Texas Wheat Crop: 49% Rated 'Poor' to 'Very Poor'

February 20, 2013 12:09 AM
 

Texas state statisticians report 49% of the winter wheat crop is in "poor" to "very poor" shape. This represents deterioration from its last crop condition ratings released Nov. 26, 2012, when 40% of the crop was rated in the bottom two categories.

State statisticians note precipitation fell over the north panhandle to eastern parts of the state with most counties receiving less than an inch of rainfall. Some areas in East Texas received an inch or more, whereas West, Central and South Texas experienced little to no rainfall with high winds and dry conditions.

"Wheat conditions across much of the state were fair to poor, with most areas in need of additional moisture. Due to recent precipitation, however, the Blacklands and East Texas saw small grains respond positively and show moderate growth. Areas in South Texas that have been irrigating saw positive results, as well," it says.
