Corn, Soybean Conditions Show Slight Slip

July 22, 2013
By: Sara Schafer, Farm Journal Media Business and Crops Editor

Crop conditions are definitely a mixed bag this year. Overall 63% of the U.S. corn crop is rated good or excellent, according to USDA’s July 21 report. That compares to 66% with that rating last week.

In some states, the corn crop is looking good. Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, North Carolina and Texas all have 80% or more of its crop with a good or excellent rating:

Yet, other areas aren’t fairing as well. Here are the states with the lowest percent of good or excellent-rated corn: Kansas, Colorado, Missouri and Iowa.

There’s a similar story for soybeans. Overall, 64% of the U.S. crop has a good or excellent rating.

Kentucky has the best-rated crop with 84% of the state’s soybeans having a good or excellent rating. Tennessee, Indiana, South Dakota, Illinois and Mississippi all have crops with 70% or more of them receiving a good or excellent rating.

On the flip side, several states’ crops are showing signs of stress. Kansas soybeans are suffering, with only 41% good or excellent. Missouri, Arkansas and Iowa also have crops with around 50% of the crop receiving the high condition ratings.
