USDA Crop Progress Report Released.

Jun 22, 2015

The USDA released the weekly Crop Progress Report.


A rainy week across the Midwest slowed down soybean planting last week and lowered the condition ratings for beans and corn.

As of Sunday, 90% of U.S. soybeans are planted, only up 3% on the week and slower than average, with 84% of the crop emerged, also behind the normal pace. 65% of U.S. soybeans are rated good to excellent, 2% below a week ago.

71% of the U.S. corn crop is called good to excellent, 2% below last week.

That rainfall also slowed down the winter wheat harvest. 19% is harvested, with a number of states yet to really get started, compared to the five year average of 31%. 41% of the crop is in good to excellent condition, a 2% week to week decline.

23% of spring wheat has headed, compared to 15% on average, and 71% of the crop is in good to excellent shape, up 1%.

65% of U.S. pastures and rangelands are in good condition, 1% below a week ago, but 10% more than a year ago at this time.
