Corn, cotton and grain sorghum condition all have the same percentages good and excellent as last week. Soybeans improved by two percentage points.
Winter wheat harvest is almost complete with only 5% to go—a few percentage points more than average. Spring wheat harvest is lagging slightly, at 53% versus normal 60%.
Corn is ahead of normal, with 88% in dough stage versus 74% average; 54% dented versus 37% average and mature, 8% versus 6% average.
Soybean maturity is about average with 91% setting pods versus 90% average.
Ninety-one percent of sorghum is headed versus an average of 85; 46% is coloring (versus 45%) and 25% is mature (versus 27%).
Cotton is slightly ahead of average: 94% setting bolls (versus 90%) and 21% opening (versus 16%).
Pasture condition is virtually unchanged at 52% excellent or good. Some states have fairly high percentages in the poor and very poor categories, however.
