U.S. wheat production rose slightly on the year

The USDA says domestic wheat production this year totaled 1.65 billion bushels. It is slightly higher than in 2021, with reductions in planted area for all wheat types offset by better harvests. Winter wheat production in the US Southern and Southwestern Plains was affected by drought or near-drought conditions across much of the region, while spring wheat was affected by planting delays in parts of the Plains North of the USA.

All types of winter wheat combined for 1.104 billion bushels, down 124 million on the year, with an average yield of 47 bushels per acre, down 2.8 bushels from a year ago, and harvested area down two million acres per year, implying an increase in abandonment due. to meteorological problems. The area planted in 2022 was slightly below 2021.

Spring wheat was pegged at 482.9 million bushels, up 151.34 million, with an average yield of 46.2 bushels per acre, a jump of 13.6 bushels and a lower abandonment rate than last year past, which helped to reverse the decline in planted area.

The next set of USDA supply and demand estimates is released on October 12th.
