Winter wheat: Planted area for harvest in 2019 is estimated at 31.3 million acres, down 4 percent from 2018 and down 4 percent from 2017. This represents the second lowest United States acreage on record. Seedings, which began in early September, fell behind the 5-year average seeding pace in early October and remained behind the 5-year average seeding pace for the duration of the planting season. Seeding was mostly complete by November 11.

Hard Red Winter (HRW) wheat seeded area is expected to total 22.2 million acres, down 3 percent from 2018. Planted acreage is down from last year across most of the growing region. The largest declines in planted acreage are estimated in California, Kansas, Nebraska, and Oklahoma. Record low acreage was seeded in Nebraska.

Soft Red Winter (SRW) wheat seeded area totals 5.66 million acres, down 7 percent from last year. Acreage decreases are expected from last year in most of the SRW growing States, while increases are expected in Alabama, Georgia, Iowa, Louisiana, and Pennsylvania. Record low acreage was seeded in New Jersey, Ohio, and West Virginia.

White Winter wheat seeded area totals 3.44 million acres, down 3 percent from 2018. Planting in the Pacific Northwest got off to a normal start, compared to the 5-year average pace, and remained near average throughout the planting season. By November 4, seeding was virtually complete in the region

Kansas was down 500,000 acres.. so far.. depends upon how much that was seeded emerges and is kept.. neighbor says.. "If I don't see $5.40 as a possibility.. I'm using mine as a cover crop..."

Overall Winter Wheat area was down 1,245,000 acres.

500 k in Kansas
200 k in Oklahoma
170 k in Nebraska
  80 k in North Carolina
  60 k in Maryland
  55 k in Arkansas
  50 k in Cali
  40 k in Mizzou

etc..

No Change in Colorado

Montana was up 150 k.

No crop progress reports yet..?? 

Last year was dry at this time.. but recovered.  This year we BARELY got it out of the ground.. and have to get it through the Spring Winds.. fingers crossed.
