There remain outliers that are not quite up to the national pace, like Pennsylvania and Michigan for corn and North Carolina and Kentucky for soybeans, but on a national level, fall harvest is in the homestretch. Monday’s USDA-NASS Crop Progress report showed corn and soybean harvest are 95% and 96% complete, respectively. Though many producers are strained by dry fall planting conditions, winter wheat farmers have planting near the finish like, at 96% complete, according to Monday’s report. Though national wheat conditions improved by one percent in the last week, drought conditions are stressing the crop in some major growing areas; only 32% of the Kansas crop was rated good to excellent, USDA’s top quality rating, heading into this week.
