Harvest Progress Ahead of Schedule Nationally, Wheat Planting Right on Time

Mon, 19 Oct 2015 18:12:00 CDT

Harvest Progress Ahead of Schedule Nationally, Wheat Planting Right on Time The nation's corn harvest has pushed ahead of the five-year average this week according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. With 59 percent of the crop harvested as of Sunday, ranging from 93 percent of the Tennessee crop to 25 percent of Colorado, total progress moved ahead of the five-year average by five percentage points.


"As corn farmers continue to work diligently, pushing harvest forward, the general understanding of the 2015 corn crop continues to deepen," said National Corn Growers Association President Chip Bowling, a grower from Maryland. "At this time, the national average yield is estimated to be the second-largest on record. While a decreased forecast for harvested acres balances the added production, America's corn farmers clearly produce an abundance. At NCGA, we continuously work to grow demand for this sustainable crop as our nation's farmers work hard to get it in the bins."


Sorghum harvest was 61 percent complete. That was well ahead of five-year average of 52.


Soybean harvest was 62 percent complete, eight points ahead of the five-year average. The soybean crop condition was steady with last week, with 64 percent in good to excellent condition.


Cotton harvest was 31 percent complete. That's near the five-year average. Cotton bolls opening was at 94 percent, ahead of the five-year average of 89.


Winter wheat planting reached 76 percent complete. That's near the average of 77. Forty-nine percent of the crop has emerged. That also in line with the five-year average.
