HARVEST REACHES AVERAGE PACE, 76% OF SOYBEANS, 61% OF CORN
BrownfieldAgNews reports:

This year's U.S. corn and soybean harvests continue to move close to the respective average paces. Development rates during the growing season and harvest paces have varied widely from state to state and even within the states, but a number of states made good progress over the past week and the USDA is projecting record corn and soybean production this year.

The USDA says that as of Sunday, 61% of U.S. corn is harvested, compared to the five year average of 62%, and soybeans are 76% harvested, matching the typical timeline. Both harvests are far enough along that the USDA has discontinued the national condition ratings for the season.

U.S. winter wheat planting is a little slower than normal at 79%, while emergence is ahead of average at 60%. In the first rating of this season, 59% of U.S. winter wheat is in good to excellent condition, 12% more than in the first rating last season.

45% of U.S. pastures and rangelands are in good to excellent shape, down 1% on the week.
