88% of U.S. corn, 95% of soybeans harvested

The U.S. corn and soybean harvests are nearing the finish line. That followed a mostly favorable week for weather in much of the Midwest and Plains with parts of the region expected to see more dry and relatively warm conditions this week.

As of Sunday, the USDA says 88% of U.S. corn has been harvested, compared to 86% on average, with 95% of the soybean crop harvested, compared to 91% on average.

93% of U.S. winter wheat is planted and 81% has emerged, both close to normal, with 47% of the crop rated good to excellent, 3% less than last week, but 15% more than this time last year.

67% of cotton is harvested, compared to 63% typically in mid-November.

92% of the sorghum crop has been harvested, compared to the five-year average of 87%.

The USDA’s weekly crop progress and condition numbers run through the end of November, but data collection and reporting would be impacted by the possible shutdown of the federal government.
