3 All wheat production totaled 2. billion bushels in 0, up 2 percent from the last forecast but percent below 03. Grain area is.2 million acres, down percent from last year. The U.S. yield is 3. bushels per acre, down. bushels from a year ago. Levels of production and change from last year by type are: winter wheat,. billion bushels, down 3 percent; other spring wheat, million bushels, up percent; and Durum wheat, 90. million bushels, down percent. Oat production is estimated at million bushels, 9 percent below the August forecast and 9 percent below last year s million bushels. The estimated yield is. bushels per acre, down. bushels from August and down 0. bushel from a year ago. Record high yields are estimated in South Dakota and Washington. Harvested area is. million acres, percent below the August forecast and 9 percent below last year. This is the smallest acreage harvested for grain on record, continuing a steady downward trend. Barley production is estimated at 20 million bushels, up 3 percent from the August forecast and up percent from last year. Average yield per acre, at a record high 9. bushels, is up 3. bushels from the last forecast and 0. bushels above 03. The area harvested for grain is estimated at.03 million acres, down 3 percent from August and percent below a year ago. The increase from the previous production forecast is mostly due to Montana, where harvested area is up,000 acres and the yield increased by bushels per acre. For Idaho, North Dakota, and Washington, yields increased from August but are more than offset by decreases in the harvested acreage, resulting in lower production.

22 Oats: Production is estimated at million bushels, 9 percent below the August forecast and 9 percent below last year s million bushels. The estimated yield is. bushels per acre, down. bushels from August and down 0. bushel from a year ago. Record high yields are estimated in South Dakota and Washington. Harvested area is. million acres, percent below the August forecast and 9 percent below last year. This is the smallest acreage harvested for grain on record, continuing a steady downward trend. Compared with last year, area harvested for grain declined,000 acres in Minnesota, 3,000 acres in North Dakota, and,000 acres in South Dakota. During April, much of the Corn Belt and Great Plains regions experienced favorable weather conditions and adequate soil moisture, allowing planting to progress ahead of normal. In the Ohio and upper Mississippi Valleys, planting continued at a rapid pace through month s end. By April, the major oat-producing s had percent of the acreage planted compared with 0 percent for the five year average. The northern Great Plains received frequent showers around mid-may which provided much-needed moisture for the emerging crop. However, below normal temperatures slowed crop development slightly. In the Corn Belt, beneficial rains allowed for adequate growth and development. By the end of May, 92 percent had emerged compared with percent for the five year average. During June, cooler weather in the northern Great Plains began to slow crop development, while in the Corn Belt, lower temperatures did not have much of an adverse effect on the crop. During July, fields entered the heading stage and matured at a near normal pace in all s except Minnesota, where cool weather caused progress to lag. By August, harvest had begun in all s, but was behind normal due to continued cool weather and areas of thunderstorms. By the end of the month favorably drier conditions allowed harvest to advance to near normal levels, except in Minnesota and North Dakota. On September, harvest was 90 percent complete in Minnesota and 9 percent complete in North Dakota, compared with 9 percent and percent for their respective five year averages. Elsewhere, harvest was virtually complete. Barley: Production is estimated at 20 million bushels, up 3 percent from the August forecast and up percent from last year s estimate. Average yield per acre, at 9. bushels, is up 3. bushels from the last forecast and 0. bushels above 03. The area harvested for grain is estimated at.03 million acres, percent below a year ago. Nationally, harvested area is the smallest since 9 but yield is a new record high,.0 bushels above the previous record of 2. bushels set in 992. Record yields were set in Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nebraska, and South Dakota. This year s barley crop got an early start in the five major-producing s, with planting and emergence advancing well ahead of the -year average. However, as below-normal temperatures prevailed across the northern Great Plains and northern Corn Belt throughout the summer, development lagged behind the normal pace. On August 29, harvest was percent complete, 29 points behind last year and points behind normal. With maturity delayed by the cool summer conditions, Minnesota growers had harvested just percent of their acreage, 3 points behind normal, while North Dakota producers, with percent of their acreage harvested, trailed the normal pace by 2 points. Winter Wheat: The 0 winter wheat production is estimated at. billion bushels. This is up nearly percent from the August forecast but 3 percent below last year s crop. The U.S. yield is 3. bushels per acre, up 0. bushel from August but 3.2 bushels below last year s final yield. Acreage for grain is estimated at 3. million acres, percent below 03. Planted area is 3. million acres, down percent from the previous year. Hard Red Winter (HRW) harvested acreage was down significantly from last year in the central Great Plains and Montana due to fewer planted acres and higher than normal abandonment. Dry spring conditions led to lower yields in all Plains s, except Texas and South Dakota. Timely rains in South Small Grains 0 Summary September 0 NASS, UA

23 Dakota and Montana resulted in better yields than in 03. Yields in Texas rebounded from below average levels last year. Overall, HRW production totals million bushels, down percent from last year. Soft Red Winter (SRW) producing s yields improved significantly from poor yields last year in the South and along the Atlantic coast. Yields declined from very good levels last year in most other s. Overall, SRW production is down fractionally from 03 and totals 30 million bushels. White Winter production, at 23 million bushels, is down percent from last year. Improved yields more than offset lower acreage in the Pacific Northwest (Idaho, Oregon, and Washington). Excellent irrigated and non-irrigated yields in Idaho resulted in a level yield equal to the record high set in 00. Other Spring Wheat: Production in 0 is estimated at million bushels, up percent from the last forecast and up percent from 03. Harvested area is 3.3 million acres, percent lower than last year. The U.S. yield is a record high 3. bushels per acre, 3. bushels better than last year and.3 bushels higher than the previous record set in 992. Dry spring conditions resulted in timely seeding of the crop. Early planting combined with timely rains resulted in rapid emergence. Crop development slowed throughout the summer due to cool temperatures and frequent precipitation, especially in Minnesota, North Dakota, and Montana. Cool, damp weather continued into August and September, delaying harvest progress. As of September 2, only percent of the crop was harvested, 0 points behind the -year average. Yields are better than last year in all s except Minnesota and Wisconsin, with large increases in most s. Objective yield survey data showed very high plant populations and weight per head in Minnesota, North Dakota, and Montana. Timely rains in eastern Idaho resulted in very good dryland yields. Durum Wheat: Production for 0 totaled 90. million bushels, up 2 percent from August, but percent less than last year. Grain area harvested totaled 2. million acres, percent below a year ago. The U.S. yield is estimated at 3.0 bushels per acre, up. bushels from the last forecast and 3.3 bushels per acre above 03. North Dakota s Durum harvest was only 2 percent complete as of September 2, more than 2 weeks behind the -year average and 3 weeks behind last year. Rye: Production for 0 is estimated at.2 million bushels, down fractionally from last year. Harvested area totaled 3,000 acres, up,000 from 03. The U.S. yield, at 2.9 bushels per acre, is down 0.2 bushel from last year. Oklahoma leads the Nation in production and recorded their largest crop on record. South Dakota set a new record high yield, breaking last year s record by bushels per acre. Small Grains 0 Summary September 0 2 NASS, UA
