Ninety-six percent of the nation’s corn was harvested as of Nov. 15, according to USDA’s latest weekly Crop Progress report.
That compares to 93% last week and a 94% five-year average. “Monday’s report was neutral for corn,” said DTN Analyst Todd Hultman.
Winter wheat planting is 94% complete, compared to 92% last week and a 98% five-year average. Eighty-seven percent of the crop is emerged, compared to 80% last week and an 86% five-year average.
“USDA said 52% of winter wheat was rated good-to-excellent, resulting in a four-point increase in the DTN Winter Wheat Condition Index to 141, which was down from 157 a year ago, but above the five-year average of 128,” Hultman said. “Monday’s report is neutral-to-bearish for wheat.”
Ninety-one percent of sorghum is harvested, compared to 85% last week and an 89% five-year average.
Sixty-four percent of the cotton crop is harvested, compared to 58% last week and a 74% five-year average.
