US Corn Harvest Continues Slowly

The U.S. corn harvest for 2014 gained only five percentage points in the last week, standing now at 17 percent, compared to a five-year average of 32 percent harvested by this date, the U.S. Department of Agriculture reports.


Crop quality continues virtually unchanged, with 74 percent rated good or excellent.


"This is a very busy season for our growers as they deal with harvesting a record corn crop," said NCGA President Chip Bowling. "As we hit the combines, we know we have challenges ahead to keep our markets strong and growing, and to ensure we have a good infrastructure in place to move our grain around the country and across the globe."


Harvest progress has now reached all 18 tracked states, ranging from 1 percent complete in North Dakota up to 79 percent complete in North Carolina. Seventy-seven percent of the corn crop is rated mature, compared to a five-year average of 81 percent.

On Friday, USDA will provide its monthly updates on crop production, supply and demand.
