Home > News > Corn, Soybean Harvest, Winter Wheat Planting Speed Along — USDA

Soybean harvest progress almost doubled in the last week, positioning farmers well ahead of where they were at this time a year ago, according to Monday’s USDA Crop Progress report. Farmers have 38% of the crop out of the field, up from 20% a week ago. Meanwhile, corn harvest progress sits at 25%, up 10% over last week. Both figures fell within range of previous trade expectations, and while there are local crop quality concerns, general ratings held steady in the last week. Winter wheat planting in the Plains is just ahead of where the trade expected it, with 52% of the crop in the ground as of Sunday, up 35% from last week. See more of Monday’s crop progress numbers.
