Thirteen percent of Indiana corn has been harvested, behind last year’s pace of 15% percent and the five-year average of 19%. Sixty-nine percent of the crop is mature and 97% is dented.

Seventeen percent of soybeans have been harvested in the state, down from 20% on average, with 80% of the crop dropping leaves.
