After a tumultuous spring, the 2022 corn crop is almost entirely in the ground. As of June 5, USDA reports that 94% of corn is planted, compared to the five-year average of 92%. However, the data draws questions as potentially millions of U.S. corn acres are still struggling with planting delays and flooding from severe weather. USDA reports that 78% of corn has emerged, just behind the 81% average, and 73% of the nation’s corn crop is rated good to excellent condition, edging above 2021’s conditions at this point last year by 1%.

USDA reports that 78% of soybeans are in the ground, just beating the 79% average. Soybeans are 56% emerged, compared to 59% on average. Cotton remains ahead of planting averages at 84%, with 11% reported squaring.
