Harvest Hits the Homestretch

October 31, 2012
By: Sara Schafer, Farm Journal Media Business and Crops Editor

Below are the latest crop condition reports from USDA.

 

Even with recent weather disruptions, U.S. farmers still made harvest progress this week. According to this week’s USDA Crop Progress and Condition Ratings, corn harvest 91% complete. That’s more than 30 percentage points ahead of normal.

Of the 18 key corn-growing states, only Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania have not reach 70% complete. South Dakota has reached the finish line in corn harvest, an impressive feat since normally they only have 47% harvested by this point in the season.

Soybean harvest is 87% complete. Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin have all finished soybean harvest. North Carolina, while on par with the normal schedule, is has the least amount harvested (17%).

Cotton harvest is 50% complete, on target with the 47% average for this point in the season.
