Winter wheat development ahead of average montana

The week ending June 30 had a cool, wet start and hot, dry finish for most of Montana, according to the National Agricultural Statistics Service, Montana Field Office, July 1.

Saint Marie received the highest amount of precipitation for the week with 1.25 inches of moisture. Most other stations reported receiving 0.00 to 1.17 inches of precipitation. High temperatures ranged from the lower 80s to the lower 90s, with the statewide high temperature of 95 degrees recorded at Superior. A majority of stations reported lows in the mid 30s to the mid 50s, the coldest being Cooke City at 28 degrees, followed by West Yellowstone with 34 degrees.

Topsoil moisture adequate and surplus is 83 percent compared with 50 percent last year and the 5 year average of 70 percent. Subsoil moisture was 78 percent adequate and surplus compared to 59 percent last year and the 5 year average of 71 percent.

The weather outlook for July 8 through July 14 is for above normal temperatures and above normal precipitation both east and west of the Great Divide. Normal temperatures for this period in Montana are highs in the mid 70s to the upper 80s, with lows 40 degrees to the upper 50s.

Winter wheat is developing ahead of the 5 year average with 98 percent in boot stage and 87 percent headed. Spring wheat development is behind last year 50 percent in boot stage and 15 percent headed.

Movement of cattle and sheep to summer ranges is nearing completion and is just behind last year with 97 percent and 98 percent moved, respectively. Range and pasture conditions declined slightly from last week with 60 percent good to excellent but still above last year’s 29 percent.
