67% of Indiana corn, 68% of soybeans rated good to excellent 

The USDA says adequate soil moisture levels supported crop condition and development last week in Indiana.

Sixty-seven percent of the state’s corn crop is in good to excellent condition, with 94 percent silking, 55 percent at the dough making stage, and two percent dented.  

Sixty-eight percent of soybeans are rated good to excellent, with 91 percent blooming, and 71 percent at the pod setting stage.

Brian Wischmeier raises corn and soybeans in Brownstown, Indiana.

“Our corn could definitely be above average,” he says. “We had a bit of a wet spell that hurt some of our soybeans but overall, I’d say we could have some of the best beans we’ve ever raised. Maybe not farm average, but potentially the best soybeans in places we’ve ever raised.”

Pasture conditions in the state held steady at 51 percent in good to excellent condition.
