Texas: Dry, Warmer Weather – US-DA

Ernst Undesser
From USDA January 21, 2014

Crop Progress and Condition for the Week Ending January 19, 2014.

Summary

Warmer temperatures returned to many portions of the state last week. Although, small areas of the Northern High Plains, the Blacklands and South East Texas received trace amounts of precipitation, most of the state remained dry. Areas from North East Texas to the Upper Coast are 1-2 inches below normal precipitation levels for this time of the year.

        
         

Small Grains: Producers in the Cross Timbers reported frost damage to a number of oat fields during the last hard freeze. The remaining oat crop needs more moisture and warmer days and nights for adequate development. Winter wheat is starting to show some signs of becoming dormant due to cold weather.

Row Crops: Preparations for corn and sorghum plantings were underway. Producers were beginning the cultivation and pre-plant fertilization in fields. Most of the cotton harvest was completed and the majority had been ginned.

Fruit, Vegetable and Specialty Crops: Producers in South Texas resumed cabbage harvest as additional fields matured. Farmers in the Lower Valley continued to harvest vegetables and citrus.

Livestock, Range and Pasture: Producers across the state were encouraged to see close to record high prices for their livestock. Ranchers in the Northern High Plains reported cattle getting good gains off of winter wheat. Range and pasture conditions continued to deteriorate, and without any rain in the coming weeks; fire danger will become a concern.
