Rain has halted wheat harvest progress in parts of Texas and Oklahoma, but was welcomed as portions of the area are still in need of moisture. Overall, the wheat crop remains ahead of schedule and has been reporting above average yields in places.

Texas – Portions of South and West Texas received up to six inches of rain last week while other areas only received scattered showers. Wheat and oats are being green chopped or baled for hay, and many grain producers have began harvesting or are preparing for harvest. Several who have started to harvest have reported above average yields. The High Plains is seeing irrigated wheat in good condition, while dryland wheat remains in need of moisture. In North Texas harvest was on hold due to rainy conditions.

Oklahoma – Harvest continues to progress, but weekend rain showers stopped combines in southwestern Oklahoma. Wheat in the Panhandle is still in need of rain, although the state received rain in portions of South Central and Southwest districts. Cooler temperatures in the mid to low sixties have continued to halt harvest. Conditions have been rated mostly good, and 80 percent of wheat heading is in soft dough stage—44 points ahead of t he five year average.

Welcome back to the All Aboard Wheat Harvest blog!

All Aboard will be making a few changes this year. We have a new sponsor, Syngenta but we'll have the same coverage of wheat harvest you've come to expect. Syngenta is one of the world's leaders in agriculture and we welcome them aboard.

In 2012 we'll be bringing back Jada, Emma, and Megan. We'll also see the reins passed from Jenna to younger Zeorian harvesters Taylor and Callie. Stephanie Osowski will join the crew this summer, and we'll follow the North Dakota based Osowski crew as they move from Oklahoma to North Dakota.

 It's that time of year again. Time to get the combines rolling and the crews to the field.

The crews will be sharing their experiences as their custom crews move from Texas on north throughout the summer months.

We encourage all of our fans to be as interactive as possible. Our correspondents love to see your feedback. Follow us on Twitter, “Like” us on Facebook, and catch our videos on YouTube. We also have a Flickr account where award-winning photos from years past are located and where new photos will be uploaded. While we anxiously await new sights of harvest enjoy a recap of some of the best photos of last harvest.
