2023 Corn Harvest Progress

Posted: 26 Sep 2023 05:30 AM

The USDA NASS Crop Progress report released yesterday estimated 9% of Iowa's corn grain crop harvest completed. The featured chart presents the yearly corn harvest estimates by day of the year based on weekly values linearly interpolated to daily. The white X denotes the location of the 9% value each year. The early start to this harvest season was no-thanks to some late heat and moisture stress that finished off the crop along with concerns about stalk health that provokes some farmers to make an early harvest to save on yield loss / harvest efficiency. Recent rains have slowed the progress down and typically farmers prioritize getting the soybeans out first.
