Nationwide corn crop continues to deteriorate, Texas holding on

Across the 18-state Corn Belt, 48 percent of the corn crop was rated either poor or very poor while only 24 percent is rated good to excellent in the Aug. 1 USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service report.

Conditions are a bit better in Texas, where 50 percent of the crop is rated good to excellent and only 15 percent is considered poor or very poor. In Northeast Texas, as harvest closed in on the halfway mark, growers were typically cutting 100 bushels per acre and better on dryland acreage last week.
