In our next to last Crop Progress of the season- harvest across the US is largely complete. USDA is no longer showing a state by state breakdown on soybeans as harvest of that crop is complete- the US corn harvest is 96% complete, cotton harvest is 79% done, Grain sorghum 97% harvested and peanuts are 94% harvested.
Eighty seven percent of the US Winter Wheat Crop is now emerged, one point ahead of the five year average and two points ahead of this time last year.
There’s no change in the national winter wheat crop condition from a week ago at 32% in good to excellent condition- 12 points under the 44% good to excellent in the middle of November last year. The Oklahoma winter wheat crop remains unchanged this week versus last at 19% good to excellent- but far below the 55% good to excellent last year at this point. Kansas is also unchanged from last week with 24% of the winter wheat crop being in good to excellent condition- and less than half the ratings of last November, which were at 61% good to excellent. Finally, Texas is at 19% good to excellent- up one point from last week and three points under a year ago.
