Monday Mycotoxin Crop Report for October 26, 2020

October 26, 2020

Corn Crop Highlight

  • 61% of corn is in the good to excellent condition
  • Precipitation aides the drought in the northeast
  • Corn development is highly variable within some fields

What does this mean?

Relatively dry weather in the Gulf states created better conditions for crop maturity and harvest. However, drought conditions continue to intensify in the southwest and High Plains. Precipitation fell in the northern part of the country, reducing the effects of drought in the northeast. 97% of corn is mature, 15 points ahead of last year, and three points ahead of the five-year average. 60% of corn is harvested, 32 points ahead of last year and 17 points ahead of the five-year average. 61% of corn is in the good to excellent condition, five points ahead of last year.
