Between severe weather, drought and an inability to do fieldwork in some areas, the winter wheat harvest is still progressing. USDA pegs harvest at 24% complete, on par with the 5-year average. Winter wheat coloring was at 96%, and 57% of the crop was rated good to excellent, 6% higher than last week, thanks to some much-needed precipitation.

Meanwhile, the latest Crop Progress Report shows corn silking at 25% complete, one day behind last year and five days behind the average. USDA says corn condition is at 48% good to excellent, the same as last week. Soybeans are 57% bloomed, two days behind last year and three days behind the five-year average.
