September 28, 2020

Corn Crop Highlight

  • Dry weather aides harvesting and corn development
  • Drought conditions continue in parts of the corn belt
  • 61% of corn is in the good to excellent condition

What does this mean?

Much of the country has remained dry, which aided harvesting conditions and corn development. On the other hand, drought conditions continue in parts of the corn belt, namely the northeast. Corn development is highly variable in some fields. 95% of corn is in the dented stage, 19 points ahead of last year, and five points ahead of the five-year average. 59% of corn is mature, 33 points ahead of last year, and ten points ahead of the five-year average. 61% of corn is in good to excellent condition, four points ahead of last year.
