July 2004 crop report shows that Georgia's wheat yield is up from the June 1 forecast, according to the Georgia Agricultural Statistics Service. Based on a sample of growers contacted on or about July 1, wheat averaged 46 bushels per acre, up 3 bushels from the June 1 forecast. The crop was much better than earlier anticipated. The increased yield was due to good harvesting weather and high test weights. Acreage harvested for grain is estimated at 200,000 acres or 30,000 acres below last year. Production now is expected to total 9.20 million bushels or 13 percent less than in 2003. Harvest was virtually complete by the end of June.
