BrownfieldAgNews reports:

The USDA's national corn condition rating dipped a little bit again last week, while soybeans held steady after another widely mixed week for weather in the Midwest and Plains.

As of Sunday, 54% of U.S. corn is called good to excellent, 1% less than last week, with 86% of the crop at the dough making stage, 46% dented, and 8% mature, all behind their respective five-year averages.

57% of soybeans are rated good to excellent, unchanged, with 91% at the pod setting stage and 4% dropping leaves, both a little bit slower than normal.

68% of spring wheat is in good to excellent shape, 4% more than a week ago, and 50% of the crop is harvested, compared to 71% on average.

34% of cotton is reported as good to excellent, 3% higher, with 94% of the crop setting bolls and 24% of those bolls opening, faster than the respective typical paces.

70% of rice is in good to excellent shape, down 2%, with 96% headed, compared to the five-year average of 98%, and 18% harvested, compared to 21% on average.

25% of U.S. pastures and rangelands are called good to excellent, a week-to-week increase of 2%.
