Corn Harvest Now Underway in All Reporting States, Wheat Nearly One-Third Planted Harvest was progressing for the nation's corn, sorghum, soybean, cotton and peanut crops and winter wheat planting was nearly one-third complete. On Monday, the U.S. Department of Agriculture reported corn harvest was taking place in the top 18 reporting states, with 18 percent of the corn crop harvested, as of Sunday. That's behind the average of 23 percent. Crop condition holds steady with 68 percent in good to excellent condition. As expected, the Southern corn states were the furthest along, as Kentucky, North Carolina, Tennessee and Texas, all report more than half their crop harvested. By contrast, Michigan, Minnesota and North Dakota have seen the fewest acres harvested.

Sorghum harvest was running ahead of average with harvest 36 percent complete, four points ahead of the five-year average. Harvest has wrapped up in Louisiana and Arkansas was at 91 percent, while Missouri was at 24 percent. The crop condition fell slightly with 65 percent in good to excellent condition.

Soybean harvest surged to 21 percent complete, five points ahead of average. Harvest was taking place in the top 18 states for soybean production. Harvest in Arkansas was at 35 percent, Missouri was at eight percent and progress was the furthest along in Louisiana with harvest 75 percent complete. Crop condition lost one point with 62 percent of the crop in good to excellent condition.

Cotton harvest was near the five year average with 11 percent of the crop harvested. Louisiana leads the nation at 32 percent. Harvest in Arkansas was nine percent complete. The condition of the crop dropped two points with 50 percent of the crop in good to excellent condition.

Nationally, winter wheat planting was 31 percent complete and seven percent of the crop has emerged. Planting progress was recorded in 17 of the top 18 wheat producing states in the nation.
