Percentages rated good/excellent declined 2 percentage points to 58% for soybeans, 66% for sorghum, and 9% for spring wheat; corn conditions also decreased in 18 selected states by 1 percentage point to 64%.
All but sorghum have a lower rating at this point in the season compared to last year's crop.
Among the five top-producing states, Nebraska's corn and soybeans appear to be faring the best (76% and 82% good/excellent respectively) while Minnesota is doing the worst (42% corn, 36% soybeans).
Indiana, Illinois, and Iowa are in-between.
Harvest of winter wheat, meanwhile, is complete in four states (AR, NC, OK, and TX) and very nearly so in three (IL, CA, and MO).
