USDA Rates 60% of Corn, Soybeans As Good to Excellent

The USDA’s national corn condition rating declined a little bit last week, while soybeans improved slightly. Conditions in key U.S. growing areas continue to look mixed, with generally better growing weather in some areas than in others.

60% of U.S. corn is in good to excellent shape as of Sunday, down 1% on the week. 93% of corn is silking, 42% is at the dough making stage, and 7% has dented, all a little slower than average.

60% of U.S. soybeans are in good to excellent condition, up 1% from a week ago. 90% of beans are blooming and 65% are in the pod stage, both ahead of normal.

94% of the winter wheat crop is harvested, compared to the five year average of 92%.

24% of spring wheat is harvested, compared to 21% typically this time of year, and 32% of the crop is rated good to excellent, up 1%.

44% of U.S. pastures and rangelands are in good to excellent condition, 1% lower than last week.
