U.S. corn planting has made up for its slow start because of generally improved conditions in many key U.S. growing areas.

As of Sunday, 62% of U.S. corn is planted, compared to 68% a year ago and the five-year average of 63%, and 28% of the crop has emerged, compared to 29% last year and the typical pace of 27%.

Soybean planting is 35% complete, compared to 29% a year ago and 26% on average, with 10% of the crop emerged, compared to 6% normally.

36% of spring wheat is rated good to excellent, up 2% on the week, but 15% below this time last year, with 45% of the crop emerged, compared to the usual pace of 53%.

58% of spring wheat is planted and 14% has emerged, both much slower than normal because of weather in the northern and northwestern U.S. Plains.

43% of U.S. pastures and rangelands are rated good to excellent, up 1% on the week.
