The US corn crop meanwhile, is assumed to be 100% planted. Silking is at 17% complete this week, well behind 59 last year and 42 the average due to late planting caused by excessive moisture during planting season. The corn cropís condition currently is in worse shape compared to last year at this time with a 14-point spread between 2019ís Good to Excellent rating and that of 2018 at this time. At present, the cropís condition is rated 58% good to excellent, 30% fair and 12% poor to very poor. In addition, nearly all intended soybean acres have been sown, with planted soybean reportedly 100% complete this week. Soybeans emerged is currently at 95%, behind the previous year by 5 points and normal by 4 points. Soybeans blooming has reached 22% of the crop, though still far behind 62% in 2018 and 49% on average, this reduced progress again a result of weather-related late planting. The soybean cropís current condition is somewhat worse in comparison to last yearís crop at this time. At present the crop has a 54% good to excellent rating versus 69% good to excellent this time last year.
