Slow Weekly Corn Progress

Posted: 05 Jun 2019 05:34 AM

This week's update to the USDA NASS corn crop planting progress continues to paint a dire picture over the corn belt. Persistent rains and wet field conditions have significantly delayed planting and the crop that has been planted has suffered from the same wet soil conditions and cool air temperatures. The featured chart depicts the weekly percentage of acres planted by year. For each year, the week with the highest value is labelled on the left hand side. This year's max so far is the lowest shown on the chart.

Good = 10
Bad = 0
