Weekly Crop Progress Report: Lowest Wheat Ratings In a Decade

Not much progress was made on the planting front last week as more cold weather and snow was seen across the northern plains while it remains very wet in much of the eastern plains. Some of the “I states” did start corn planting last week, but not much. Overall, it was another slow week in farm country according to USDA NASS.

Corn planting progress is seven percent nationwide as of Sunday, April 24th. That’s up three percent from last week and eight percent behind the five-year average. Soybeans are just three percent planted and two percent behind the five year average. Winter wheat condition nationwide is just 27% good to excellent. That is some of the worst ratings in a decade.
