Corn and Soybean Conditions Stays Relatively Good Nationally, While Pasture and Range Conditions Slip A Little

Mon, 09 Sep 2019 17:30:24 CDT

Corn and Soybean Conditions Stays Relatively Good Nationally, While Pasture and Range Conditions Slip A Little The United States Department of Agriculture released its latest Crop Progress Report on Monday, September 09, 2019. 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 55% good to excellent condition. That fell right at the average trade guess of 58%, but still looks a bit less desirable compared to last year’s rating at this time of 68% good to excellent. Corn doughing is reported this week at 89% versus 81% last week and the five-year average of 97%. Corn dented is reported at 55% this week, versus 41% last week and the five-year average 77%. Corn maturity is rated at 11% currently versus 6% last week and the five-year average 24%. 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 13 points below last year’s rating. Soybeans are setting pods at 92% versus 86% last week and 99% 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 lower compared to last week. Currently, pasture and range conditions rate 51% good to excellent condition.
