With only 5 percent of the corn crop planted in the major states where USDA reports progress on a weekly basis, the slow start has continued to feed anxiety about the 2013 corn crop in particular going in the ground “late.”

Final planting dates ahead. While the question of whether or not corn is planted by the optimal yield date (typically around May 15) is a much more immediate concern, there is still a while to go before the final planting date when prevented planting coverage becomes a factor relative to the crop insurance program.
