2003 Hard Spring Wheat and Durum Crop Tour
July 28 - 31, 2003                                                  Summary by Ben Handcock

The tour was conducted from July 28 31 in North Dakota plus parts of South Dakota and Minnesota. (Tour Map) Thirty-eight people participated.

The spring wheat fields surveyed (308) averaged 37.6 bushels per acre. The durum fields (71) averaged 28.6 bushels per acre. The spring wheat potential is about five and one half bushels above last year and four bushels above the tour 5-year average. The durum potential is about three bushels above last year and two and one half bushels above the tour 5-year average. (Tour Results)

The average for all spring and durum fields was 35.9 compared to the 5-year tour average of 31.6.

Day one covered the south half of the state with yields ranging from a high of 64 bushels per acre in the valley to a low of 11 bushels in the far west.

Day two covered the northwest and north central parts of the state with a high yield of 76 bushels per acre and a low of eight bushels per acre.

Day three covered the northeast and north central area with a high yield of 80 bushels per acre and a low of 13.

I would expect the quality of this crop to be very good. The plumpness of the kernels would indicate a high test weight potential. Protein content is impossible to estimate until harvest, but higher than average yields can
