USDA: 68% OF BOTH CORN AND SOYBEANS RATED GOOD TO EXCELLENT
BrownfieldAgNews reports:

The USDA's national corn and soybean condition ratings improved a little over the past week. Development weather remains mostly favorable, but there are some areas of concern, and there could be some impact this week as the remnants of Tropical Storm Beryl make their way inland.

As of Sunday, 68% of U.S. corn is rated good to excellent, up 1% on the week, with 24% of the crop silking and 3% at the dough making stage, both ahead of the respective five-year averages.

68% of soybeans are in good to excellent condition, 1% higher, with 34% blooming and 9% at the pod setting stage, faster than average.

63% of winter wheat has been harvested, compared to the normal rate of 52%.

75% of the spring wheat crop is called good to excellent, 3% more than a week ago, with 59% of the crop headed, compared to 60% on average.

45% of cotton is in good to excellent shape, a drop of 5%, with 52% squaring and 19% setting bolls, above their typical paces.

81% of the rice crop is reported as good to excellent, a decline of 1%, and 31% has headed, compared to 20% on average.

59% of sorghum is good to excellent, 1% more than the prior week, with 23% headed and 13% coloring, both a little bit behind usual.

44% of U.S. pastures and rangelands are said to be good to excellent, 4% less than the week before.

The USDA's weekly national crop progress and condition numbers run through the end of November.
