60% of winter wheat is planted, in-line with the typical pace, with 31% emerged, compared to 35% on average.

20% of cotton is harvested, compared to 26% on average, with 78% of bolls opening, compared to 82% normally in mid-October, and 64% of the crop called good to excellent, an increase of 2%.

81% of rice is harvested, compared to the five-year average of 85%.
