OMAHA (DTN) — Corn harvest is complete for 2015 and winter wheat planting is nearly done, according to USDA’s latest weekly Crop Progress report.
Winter wheat planting is 96% complete, compared to 94% last week and a 100% five-year average. Ninety percent of the crop is emerged, compared to 87% last week and a 90% five-year average.
"USDA said that 53% of winter wheat was rated good-to-excellent, resulting in a one-point increase in the DTN Winter Wheat Condition Index to 142, which was down from 154 a year ago, but above the five-year average of 125," said DTN Analyst Todd Hultman. "Monday’s report is neutral for wheat."
Ninety-four percent of sorghum is harvested, compared to 91% last week and a 93% five-year average.
Seventy percent of the cotton crop is harvested, compared to 64% last week and an 82% five-year average.
