Based on May 1 conditions, Kansas's 2019 winter wheat crop is forecast at 323 million bushels, up 17 percent from last year's crop, according to the USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service. Average yield is forecast at 49 bushels per acre, up 11 bushels from last year. Acreage to be harvested for grain is estimated at 6.60 million acres, down 700,000 acres from last year. This would be 94 percent of the planted acres, below last year's 95 percent harvested.

May 1 Kansas hay stocks of 630,000 tons are down 21 percent from last year.

All hay stored on United States farms, as of May 1, 2019, totaled 14.9 million tons, down 3 percent from a year ago. Disappearance from December 1, 2018-May 1, 2019, totaled 64.1 million tons, compared with 69.1 million tons for the same period a year earlier. This marks the lowest May 1 hay stocks since the drought of 2012 and the second lowest since records began in 1950.
