Crop Progress-3% of Corn Planted


The USDA says 3% of this year’s U.S. corn crop has been planted as of Sunday, a little bit slower than the 4% year ago, but matching the five year average. Widespread planting has not started yet in the Midwest, but a few states have made some early progress, including Illinois and Missouri, which are both slightly behind normal.

53% of winter wheat is in good to excellent condition, up 2% from a week ago after the recent rainfall in parts of the Southern Plains. 9% of the crop has headed, compared to 4% a year ago and 6% typically this time of year.

5% of spring wheat is planted, compared to 12% last year and 11% on average.

U.S. soil moisture levels improved slightly over the past week.
