Crop Progress, June 5: Corn condition increases; soybean planting nears completion

As of June 5, nearly of the 2016 corn crop had been planted across the United States. And the majority of that planted crop is out of the ground already. Soybean planting and emergence pace is running ahead of average and making good progress.


Ninety-eight percent of the corn crop has been planted, just barely ahead of the 97% average pace. Of the corn that's been planted, 90% has emerged. All corn has been planted and emerged in Missouri, and all other corn-producing states have at least 90% of the crop planted. Only three states have less than 80% of the planted crop emerged, including: Michigan (73% emerged), Ohio (75%) and Pennsylvania (72%).

Corn crop conditions improved slightly over last week, and are just slightly ahead of conditions a year go at this time. The overall crop is in 75% good/excellent condition (72% last week and 74% a year ago). The best corn so far is in Wisconsin where 86% of the crop is in good/excellent condition.

Soybean emergence rates in the Upper Midwest are well ahead of average, particularly in Wisconsin (74% vs. 48% average), Minnesota (85% vs. 57%) and North Dakota (75% vs. 39%).

The overall soybean condition is ahead of last year's condition by 3 points, with 72% of the overall crop in good/excellent condition. The best-condition soybeans are in Wisconsin where 82% of the crop is in good/excellent condition. Only 1% of the overall soybean crop across the major-producing states is in very poor condition.
