91% of U.S. corn, 92% of soybeans harvested

The end is in sight for this year’s U.S. corn and soybean harvests. Harvest weather last week was mixed, with delays in parts of the Midwest and Plains from precipitation, including snow in parts of the region. Also, portions of the eastern Midwest are experiencing overall wetter than normal conditions, which is also slowing down hard red winter wheat planting in those areas.

The USDA says that as of Sunday, 91% of this year’s U.S. corn crop is harvested, compared to 84% a week ago and the five-year average of 86%, while 92% of soybeans are harvested, compared to 87% last week and 93% on average.

94% of winter wheat is planted, matching the usual pace, and 81% has emerged, compared to 83% normally in mid-November, with 46% of the crop in good to excellent condition, up 1% on the week.

65% of cotton is harvested, compared to 64% on average.

The USDA’s next set of production projections is out December 9th.
