2016 Summary

The 2016 U.S. hard red spring
wheat crop features a high grade
profile, high protein content,
sound kernel traits and improved
functional performance. An early
planting season and excellent
growing season pushed the
national yield to a record, but
production slipped thirteen percent
from last year, as planted area
declined. Functional performance,
from an overall crop perspective, is
showing very good values for water
absorption, dough strength, loaf
volume and bake properties.
