36% of soybeans are planted, compared to 23% last week, 41% last year, and 32% on average. Louisiana and Mississippi are the furthest along, both at 72%, followed by Minnesota at 63%. 10% of soybeans have emerged, versus 9% typically this time of year. 

62% of U.S. winter wheat is rated good to excellent, unchanged on the week, and 68% has headed. 

89% of spring wheat has been planted and 60% has emerged, which are well ahead of average. 

63% of pastures and rangelands are in good to excellent shape, up 1% from a week ago.
