Crop Progress

07/11/2022

Status of 2022 Corn and Soybean Crops

The USDA Crop Progress Report released on July 18th documented declining quality of both soybean and corn crops lagging their respective 4-year averages. Thirty seven percent of the corn was silking up from 15 percent last week. Forty eight percent of the soybean crop was blooming on July 17th. The fact that a high proportion of the corn crop was planted over a two-week period has created widespread vulnerability to heat and drought at the critical stage of silking.

 

For the week ending July 17th topsoil and subsoil moisture levels are lower than the corresponding week in 2021 as the corn-belt demonstrates the effect of drought. The average percentage topsoil moisture for the eight largest corn and soy-producing states averaged 42 percent for the USDA classifications of “very short” and “short” with a range of 27 percent for Ohio to 62 percent for Kansas. EGG-NEWS will report on the progress of the two major crops as monitored by the USDA through the end of the 2022 harvest in November.

AccuWeather project that drought and heat will reduce the corn crop to a range of 14.0 to 14.3 billion bushels compared to the WASDE July value of 14.5 billion bushels
