96% of U.S. corn, 91% of soybeans planted

The USDA’s national corn condition rating fell over the past week. That was largely due to warm, dry weather in portions of the central and eastern Midwest.

As of Sunday, 64% of the U.S. corn crop is in good to excellent shape, 5% lower than the previous week, with 96% of the crop planted, compared to the five-year average of 91%, and 85% emerged, compared to 77% on average.

61% of soybeans are in good to excellent condition in the first rating of the season, with 31% rated fair.
