The quality of the U.S. corn and soybean crops in 18 selected states continues to run close to where 2021 crops were at this point in the season, according to today's Crop Progress Report by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).
Sixty-one percent of corn was rated good or excellent, compared to 64% one week ago and one year ago.
As for soybeans, the ratings were 59%, 61%, and 58%, respectively.
Spring wheat conditions in six selected states are beginning to decline, rated 68% good/excellent compared to 71% the week before, but sorghum continues to be only about half as good as last year's crop, with 30% rated good/excellent versus 66% in 2021.
