According to this week’s report, the overall conditions remain on the positive side with continued progress in the development of the crops. Focusing on corn, the crop’s good to excellent ratings remained the same at 55% good to excellent condition. The average trade guess of 53% to 54%, 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 93% this week versus 89% last week, and the five-year average at this time is 98%. Corn denting this week came in at 68% versus 55% last week, the five-year average at this time is 87%. Corn maturity came in at 18% this week versus 11% last week, the five-year average at this time is 39%. This is the first week that reports corn harvested. Corn harvested came in at 4% this week, last year at this time it 8%. Soybeans setting pods this week came in at 95% versus 92% last week, the five-year average at this time is 100%. The good to excellent ratings for soybeans this week came in at 54% versus 55% last week.l That is right in line with the average trade guess of 53% to 54%, but is still behind last year’s 67% good to excellent ratings. Pasture and range conditions this week nationally came in at 47% good to excellent, 31% fair and 22% poor to very poor.
