Sorghum is going strong out of the gate, with over half the crop emerged in six selected states for the week ending June 6 and 74% rated good/excellent compared to 55% for the 2020 crop at this point last year.

According to today's U.S. Department of Agriculture's Crop Progress Report, the conditions of corn, winter wheat, and soybeans all remain comparable to the previous year's crops in 18 selected states.

Unfortunately, the quality of spring wheat in six selected states declined still further from the week before, going from 43% to 39% good/excellent compared to 82% good/excellent one year ago.
