Texas Wheat Crop Condition Improves

February 13, 2012 09:30 AM
 

Texas state statisticians say the condition of the state's winter wheat crop improved last week, with crop rated "good" to "excellent" up three percentage points from last week to 29%. However, 40% of the crop is rated in "poor" to "very poor" shape.

State statisticians note that most areas of the state received precipitation last week, mostly ranging from 0.01 inch to 1 inch. "Isolated areas in East Texas and the Lower Valley reported up to 2 inches. Central Texas reported up to 1 inch of moisture and the Plains reported up to 0.5 inch. Despite limited precipitation, dry and windy conditions persisted over much of the Tran-Pecos and Plains regions."

"Winter wheat in the High Plains and Northern Low Plains continued to suffer from insufficient moisture. Moisture requirements were low, as much of the winter wheat remained dormant," states the report. "However, as the weather warms into spring, moisture will be critical. Further to the south and east, precipitation provided much-needed soil moisture and improved wheat, oat and barley crops."
