Monday Mycotoxin Crop Report for November 16, 2020

November 16, 2020

Corn Crop Highlight

  • 91% of corn is harvested in the U.S.
  • Corn development is highly variable
  • Droughts continue in the northeast and corn belt

What does this mean?

91% of corn is harvested, 29 points ahead of last year and 11 points ahead of the five-year average. Corn development is highly variable within some fields. Dry weather in the middle of the country aided harvesting while precipitation in the western U.S. added to topsoil moisture — helping the firefighting efforts. However, drought continues in the west, parts of the corn belt, and the northeast.

Corn harvest progress by each state is as follows:

51-75%

  • OH 64%
  • PA 72%
