The recent weeks of nearly perfect weather have aided many farmers with their harvest tasks. According to USDA 68% of the U.S. corn crop is harvested, which is a big jump from last week’s 51% and the five-year average of 39%.
Soybean harvest is also ahead of the five-year average. Just over 80% of U.S. soybeans have been harvested, comparing to the five-year average of 62%.
Additionally, just over 40% of the crop is harvested, which compares to a 30% five-year average. Sorghum and rice harvests are also on time or ahead.
