Only 10% corn planted in Illinois

The heavy rainfall and flooding in some areas of Illinois has slowed crop progress significantly. Severe storms swept across the state last week and damaged some farm property.

Corn planting is only 10 percent complete, compared to 67% this time last year and the five year average of 27%.

The Illinois Ag Statistics Office says winter wheat conditions are 56% good to excellent. Despite the weather, Illinois pasture conditions, as of Sunday, were 66 percent good to excellent.
