USDA: Corn, Soybean Harvests Back on Schedule

USDA: Corn, Soybean Harvests Back on Schedule

Despite weather delays of rain and snow, farmers are back on schedule with their corn and soybean harvests.

According to today’s Crop Progress report from the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service, the corn harvest is 89 percent complete as of Nov. 16, which is actually one percentage point ahead of the five-year average.

Soybean farmers have made more progress. Their harvest is 94 percent complete, which is 2 percentage points behind the five-year average.

Winter wheat planting is also right on schedule, with 95 percent of the crop planted. That, too, is just 2 percentage points off the five-year average.

  Back on schedule with harvest? Turn on the weather channel or step outside for a few minutes before releasing another headline like this.

  I find it hard to believe, for the fact of all the snow and cold. Soybeans cannot be harvested when there is 4 inches of snow, unless you are just going to cut above the snow. I doubt the harvest is "normal paced" now with the northern states seeing so much snow, and being last to harvest. More like someone did not want a price rally.
