20% of U.S. corn, 22% of soybeans harvested

The USDA says the corn and soybean harvests both made solid advances last week but are a little behind their normal paces. While weather was generally conducive for harvest activity last week, development in some areas was pushed back by planting delays this spring.

As of Sunday, 20% of U.S. corn is harvested, compared to the five-year average of 22%, with 96% dented, 75% mature, and 52% of the crop in good to excellent condition.

22% of soybeans are harvested, compared to 25% on average, with 81% of beans dropping leaves and 55% rated good to excellent.

40% of winter wheat has been planted, compared to 44% normally in early October, with 15% emerged, compared to 17% on average.

77% of cotton bolls have opened and 22% of the crop is harvested, both faster than usual, with 31% of the crop called good to excellent.

70% of rice is harvested, compared to 72% on average.

24% of U.S. pastures and rangelands are in good to excellent shape, down 2%.
