Wheat fields in good condition Texas

Advertisement

Precipitation was mostly concentrated along the coast during the week ending Oct. 27, mostly in the Blacklands, and in East Texas, according to the National Agricultural Statistics Service, Texas Field Office, Oct. 28.

While temperatures warmed across much of the state, areas of the Panhandle experienced freezing temperatures at night, and some hail was received in the Cross Timbers. Rainfall improved soil moisture levels across the state.

Wheat fields were in good condition across the state as newly seeded crops benefitted from improved soil moisture levels. However, some areas were still in need of additional rainfall. Small grain seeding made good progress, but was slowed by wet conditions in the Blacklands and East Texas.

Producers in the Panhandle were harvesting cotton, sorghum, and peanuts. Cotton harvest progressed in most areas, but was slowed by wet conditions in the Blacklands and North East Texas. Peanut harvest continued in South Texas.

Pumpkin harvest was wrapping up in the Northern High Plains. Pecans were being harvested in the Edwards Plateau, South Central Texas, and South Texas. Producers in the Coastal Bend harvested sesame and some guar. Planting of winter vegetables continued in the Lower Valley, where producers were also harvesting naval and early oranges, as well as sugarcane.

Winter pastures and rangeland across the state continued to benefit from previous rains. Timely rains allowed many producers to make another cutting of hay. Some areas that received adequate rainfall have seen stock tanks and ponds replenished. Army worms remained a concern in the Cross Timbers, the Blacklands, North East Texas, and South Central Texas.
