US corn and soybean crops, as of Sunday, were still in very good condition, before the major wind storm that hit the Corn Belt Monday.
USDA’s crop progress and condition update for the week ending August 9th showed corn at 97% silking, 59% dough, 11% dented, and 71% of the crop in good to excellent condition. That number was just a bit less than expected but still a very good reading for this time of year.
US soybeans were 92% blooming, 75% setting pods and 74% in good to excellent condition.
US spring wheat was 15% harvested and 69% of the crop was in good to excellent condition. US winter wheat was 90% harvested as of Sunday.
