USDA: ONLY HALF OF THE CORN HAS BEEN PLANTED, 19% OF SOYBEANS
BrownfieldAgNews reports:

The USDA reports another slow week for national corn, soybean, and spring wheat planting.

Some key growing areas were able to make at least some progress last week, but others weren't as lucky and most of the Corn Belt is expected to see another round of heavy rainfall and possibly severe storms this week.

As of Sunday, 49% of corn is planted, compared to 30% a week ago, and the five-year average of 80%, and 19% has emerged, compared to 49% on average.

19% of U.S. soybeans are planted, compared to 9% last week, and the usual pace of 47%, with emergence at 5%, compared to 17% normally.

70% of spring wheat is planted, compared to 45% the week before and 80% on average, and 26% has emerged, compared to 51% typically this time of year.

66% of U.S. winter wheat is in good to excellent condition, up 2% from a week ago, but with much better ratings for hard red winter than soft red winter because of wet conditions in the eastern Midwest. 54% has emerged, compared to 66% on average.

66% of U.S. pastures and rangelands are rated good to excellent, 3% more than last week.
