U.S. Winter Wheat Objective Yield Data - July 2018



Winter Wheat for Grain Objective Yield Data
The National Agricultural Statistics Service is conducting objective yield
surveys in 10 winter wheat-producing States during 2018. Randomly selected
plots in winter wheat for grain fields are visited monthly from May through
harvest to obtain specific counts and measurements. Data in these tables are
based on counts from this survey.
