CORN PROGRESS LAGGING AVERAGE, CONDITION TRAILING 2016
Source: National Corn Growers Association news release

A fewer number of corn acres have reached the dented or mature stage than the five-year average according to a report released today by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

With 86 percent of total corn acres dented by September 17 and mature acres at only 34 percent, corn progress trails the five-year average by four and 13 percentage points respectively.

The number of corn acres harvested also has fallen behind the five- year average given maturity delays, currently trailing by four percentage points.

Additionally, 61 percent of all corn acres in the top 18 corn-planted states in 2017 remained in good or excellent condition, 13 percentage points lower than last year at this time.
