Weekly Corn Planting

Posted: 06 May 2015 05:40 AM

The USDA updated corn planting progress valid for 3 May shows that Iowa farmers had a very productive last week with 54% of the projected corn acres getting planted over the past seven days. The featured chart displays the percentage of acres planted over the seven day analysis periods for each year since 1979. The highest weekly total is shown on the left hand side of the chart. This analysis would indicate that it is common for such a high percentage of acres to get planted within one week. Progress this week has slowed considerably with numerous rounds of rain.

Good = 19
Bad = 11
Abstain = 4
