U.S. winter wheat acreage up 11%

U.S. farmers planted more winter wheat.

The USDA says 36.95 million acres of winter wheat were planted, up 11% from the 2022 total, including a 10% jump in hard red winter to 25.3 million, a 20% increase for soft red winter at 7.9 million acres, and a 3% rise for white winter wheat to 3.73 million.

That’s likely in response to a tighter global supply and expectations for at least some improvement in export demand for U.S. wheat.

The U.S. winter wheat crop is currently in dormancy, emerging this spring.
