Monday Mycotoxin Crop Report for November 2, 2020

November 02, 2020

Corn Crop Highlight

  • Northern region experiences cold weather
  • 72% of corn is harvested
  • Corn development is highly variable within some fields

What does this mean?

The northern part of the country experienced colder temperatures than normal, where winter-like storms slowed fieldwork but increased topsoil moisture. 72% of corn is harvested, 34 points ahead of last year and 16 points ahead of the five-year average. Dry weather continues in California and parts of the high plains, contributing to historically large wildfires. Corn development is highly variable within some fields.
