Status of 2019 Corn and Soybean Crops

08/12/2019

The USDA Crop Progress Report released August 12th documented progress in both corn and soybeans after a slow start to planting that is expected to negatively impact yields as documented in the August WASDE Report in this edition. Current crop condition for both soybeans and corn are inferior to the 2018 harvest as tabulated below. High topsoil moisture levels are evident in comparison with the corresponding week in 2018. Long-range forecasts call for dry weather in the Eastern corn-belt in late August.

CHICK-NEWS and EGG-NEWS will report on the progress of the two major crops as monitored by the USDA through the end of the 2019 harvest in October.
