65% of Corn Crop Rated Good, Excellent


As hard as it may be to believe, this year’s corn crop is in better condition than last year’s crop. USDA reported on June 23 that 65% of the corn crop is rated good or excellent, which compares to 56% with that rating in 2012.

In Pennsylvania, nearly 90% of the crop is in good to excellent condition. The Ohio and Kentucky corn crop s are also looking good, with more than 80% of their crops receiving the top two condition ratings.

On the flip side, 60% or less of the corn crop in these states has good or excellent ratings: Wisconsin, Minnesota, Kansas, Iowa, Missouri and Colorado.
