Corn and soybean development continued to lag behind the average pace last week, but conditions for both crops rose slightly, according to the latest USDA NASS Crop Progress report released Monday.

As of Sunday, July 14, an estimated 17% of corn was silking, up 9 percentage points from the previous week but 25 percentage points behind the five-year average of 42%.

Corn condition, estimated at 58% good to excellent, was up 1 percentage point from 57% the previous week. That’s still the lowest good-to-excellent rating for this time of year in seven years.

“Among the top eight corn-producing states, Nebraska has the highest good-to-excellent rating at 77%, while Ohio and Indiana are at the bottom with 38% and 39%, respectively,” said DTN Lead Analyst Todd Hultman. “In Missouri, only 32% of corn was rated good to excellent.”

Soybean development also remained behind normal last week. NASS estimated that 95% of the soybean crop that was planted had emerged as of Sunday, 4 percentage points behind the five-year average of 99%. Twenty-two percent of soybeans were blooming, up 12 percentage points from the previous week but 27 percentage points behind the five-year average of 49%.

The soybean crop’s good-to-excellent rating of 54% was up 1 percentage point from 53% the previous week. As with corn, the soybeans’ good-to-excellent rating is the lowest in seven years.

“Again, Nebraska tops the list with 71% of soybeans rated good to excellent, while Ohio was at 33%,” Hultman said.

Winter wheat harvest moved ahead another 10 percentage points last week to reach 57% complete as of Sunday, behind last year’s 72% and 14 percentage points behind the five-year average of 71%.

“The Kansas harvest is 81% complete, while Missouri, Texas and Oklahoma are all within 4 percentage points of being finished,” Hultman said.

Seventy-eight percent of the spring wheat crop was headed, jumping 22 percentage points from 56% the previous week, but was 9 percentage points behind the five-year average of 87%.

Spring wheat condition was rated 76% good to excellent, down 2 percentage points from the previous week’s 78% good to excellent, but still a high rating for the crop for this time of year, Hultman said.

Twenty-four percent of sorghum was headed, 7 percentage points behind the five-year average of 31%. Sorghum coloring was estimated at 14%, behind the average of 19%. Sorghum condition was rated 74% good to excellent. Oats were 87% headed, behind the average of 95%.

Cotton squaring reached 60% as of Sunday, behind the average pace of 69%. Cotton setting bolls was 20%, also behind the average of 25%. Cotton condition was rated 56% good to excellent, up 2 percentage point from the previous week’s 54% good to excellent. Twenty-four percent of rice was headed, behind the average of 31%. Rice condition was rated 67% good to excellent.

In July, USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) will collect updated information on 2019 acres planted to corn, cotton, sorghum, and soybeans in 14 states.

NASS previously collected planted acreage information during the first two weeks of June, with the results published in the June 28 Acreage report. Excessive rainfall had prevented planting at the time of the survey, leaving a portion of acres still to be planted for corn in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin; cotton in Arkansas; sorghum in Kansas; and soybeans in Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.

If the newly collected data justify any changes, NASS will publish updated acreage estimates in the Crop Production report to be released at noon ET on Monday, Aug. 12. It will be available online at www.nass.usda.gov/Publications.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) released the Congressional District Profiles and Rankings from the 2017 Census of Agriculture on the NASS website. This summary presents data by congressional district that includes land, farms, market value of agricultural products sold, rankings, and producer characteristics. These profiles are often used by producers, congressional leaders, and others to support agriculture in their districts.

U.S. Senator Ben Sasse had this to say about Nebraska’s Third Congressional District:

    “The profiles are a quick way to see what’s going on with agriculture in a particular area – to show its value at the local level,” said NASS Administrator Hubert Hamer. “They provide an easy way to evaluate high-level data, compare characteristics of one district to another, and educate colleagues, policymakers, and non-farming neighbors about farming in that location.”

    NASS released the Census of Agriculture State and County profiles on May 30. Still to be released is the Watersheds Report on July 25; the American Indian Reservations Report on August 26; Zip Code Tabulations on September 18; and Race, Ethnicity, and Gender Profiles on October 1. All of these products will be available atwww.nass.usda.gov/AgCensus.

    Other products to be released this summer and fall include state-specific Census blogs showcased onwww.usda.gov and additional Census Highlights publications found on the NASS website. Notifications of when these products are available are announced @USDA__NASS on Twitter. In addition to these products, special tabulations of data may be requested on the NASS website, if needed.

    Already preparing for the 2022 Census of Agriculture, NASS is asking for content change suggestions and for new producers who did not receive a 2017 Census of Agriculture form last year to sign up to be counted in future censuses and surveys. Both forms can be found at www.nass.usda.gov.

 Corn planting was 92% complete and the portion of the crop that had emerged was rated 59% in good-to-excellent condition as of Sunday, June 16, according to this week’s USDA NASS Crop Progress report. Soybean planting was 77% complete.

When the door won’t open you take the window. That may be the big take away from this week’s Crop Progress Report. With a small window corn and soybean planting made leaps last week. Corn planting was 83% complete and the portion of the crop that had emerged was rated 59% in good-to-excellent condition as of Sunday, June 9. Nebraska corn now sets at 94% planted just 5% back from the 5 year average.

For soybean planting was 60% complete, but that remains 31% behind the five year average. Of the crop that is planted  34% of it has emerged 29% behind the five year average.

New to this week’s report is winter wheat harvest now at 4% harvested nationally. Nebraska and Kansas have yet to harvest any wheat, but the crop looks good at 69% & 68% good to excellent ratings.

Top soil moisture remains abundant in Nebraska at 99% adequate to surplus.
