Harvest Wrapping Up, with 93% of Soybeans, 86% of Corn in the Bin

The U.S. corn and soybean harvests made good advances over the past week. A number of Midwestern states remain behind average after heavy rainfall during the early stages of harvest, but according to Brownfield meteorologist Greg Soulje, aside from scattered showers, near term conditions for late harvest activity look good in much of the region.

As of Sunday, 86% of U.S. corn is harvested, compared to 75% last week and the five year average of 85%. Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, and the Dakotas are behind normal and none have reached the 90% mark.

93% of U.S. soybeans are harvested, compared to 87% a week ago and 91% typically this time of year. At 77%, Michigan is the furthest behind usual.

91% of winter wheat is planted, a little slower than normal, and 79% has emerged, slightly faster than normal. 58% of winter wheat is in good to excellent shape, unchanged on the week.
