Corn and Soybean Maturity and Condition Continues to Lag Year Ago and Five Year Average In the latest Crop Progress Report, released Monday, August 26, 2019 by the United States Department of Agriculture, it is indicated that both the US corn and soybean crops have stayed relatively the same in their overall condition since the last report. According to this week’s report, corn conditions reportedly increased by one point from last week, in line with the average trade guess, down to 57% good to excellent condition. This is quite a bit weaker compared to where the crop was a year ago at this time at 68%. Corn in the dough stage is reportedly at 71%, versus 55% last week but still well-behind the five-year average of 87%. Corn denting this week is rated at 27%, versus 15% last week and compared to the five-year average of 46%. Meanwhile, the US soybean crop has increased in condition from 53% last week, up two points to 55% good to excellent. That’s 11 points below last year’s crop condition at this time last year when it was 66% good to excellent. Soybean blooming reached 94% this week, versus 90% last week and the average of 99%. Across the US, 79% of the soybean crop is setting pods, 11 points better than last week but below normal by 12 points. Pasture and range conditions meanwhile have maintained relatively steady since last week, with a mere one-point increase in poor to very poor conditions.
