Corn and Soybean Conditions Continue to Fall Behind of Last Year and the Average While Pasture and Range Conditions Better Than Last Year

Tue, 03 Sep 2019 17:50:08 CDT

Corn and Soybean Conditions Continue to Fall Behind of Last Year and the Average While Pasture and Range Conditions Better Than Last Year The United States Department of Agriculture released its latest Crop Progress Report on Tuesday, September 03, 2019 just a day late due to the Labor Day Holiday. According to this week’s report, the overall condition of both the US corn and soybean crops remain relatively good with some notable progress made in the development of the crops since last week’s report. Favorable weather forecasts also bode well for continued progress in the weeks ahead. Focusing on corn, the crop’s conditions increased this week by one point up to 58% good to excellent condition. That fell within the average trade guess of 58 to 59%, but still looks a bit less desirable compared to last year’s rating at this time of 67% good to excellent. Corn doughing is reported this week at 81% versus 71% last week and the five-year average of 93%. Corn dented is reported at 41% this week, a long jump from 27% the week before but still a far cry from the 63% measure recorded this time last year. Corn maturity is rated at 6% currently, less than half the normal rate of 13% and more than three times below last year’s rate of 20%. Meanwhile, the US soybean crop is reportedly at 55% good to excellent condition this week. Though steady with last week’s rating, it is still 11 points below last year’s rating. Soybeans blooming is reported at 96% this week, up two points from last week but below normal by four points. Soybeans are setting pods at 86% versus 79% last week and 96% the average. This report coincides with a flip of the US weather forecast which has turned to the warm side, alleviating any early frost concerns for the time being. Pasture and range conditions across the US remain relatively unchanged since last week, though are bit better in comparison to this time last year. Currently, pasture and range conditions rate 53% good to excellent condition. Last year at this time, pasture and range conditions were rated at just 42% good to excellent.
