Rapid Harvest Continues

October 4, 2010 10:38 AM

USDA’s Crop Progress report shows corn 37% harvested versus the 21% average for this week. But Tennessee is almost complete; Kentucky is 90% done versus normal 60%; Illinois, 74% versus 31%; Kansas 69% versus 48%. Texas is lagging, with only 68% combined compared with its 78% average.

Likewise, soybean harvest is 37% complete compared with an average 28%. Southern states are about three-quarters finished, 10 percentage points above normal; Indiana is 63% finished; Illinois, 50; Iowa about average at 38%.
Cotton harvest is seven percentage points past average, at 25% complete. Some states are well ahead of usual—for instance Louisiana at 75% and Mississippi at 71%--close to double their average.
Grain sorghum harvest is about average with many states running ahead of normal, although some states are behind: Texas at 61% versus 71% average, for example.   
Crop conditions are basically unchanged from a week earlier.
