Crop Progress

05/22/2023

Status of 2023 Corn and Soybean Crops

 

The USDA Crop Progress Report released on May 21st documented corn and soybean planting for the 2023 crop. Soybeans and corn are both ahead of the five-year average with respect to planting and emergence.

The extent of damage due to unseasonal frost in late April should be reflected in future projections of yield. Subsequent reports will also quantify damage in Kansas as a result of drought although it appears that the wheat crop was most affected.  The effect of the ongoing transition to an El Nino event will become apparent in mid- summer from USDA WASDE and Crop Progress Reports and pre-harvest field evaluations.

 

Subsoil and surface moisture levels were higher than the corresponding weeks in 2022 expediting germination and early growth. EGG-NEWS will report on the progress of the two major crops as monitored by the USDA through the end of the 2023 harvest in November.

 

Reference is made to the May 12th WASDE Report #636 retrievable under the STATISTICS tab and the weekly Commodity and Energy Report documenting prospective planting in this edition. WASDE #637 will be posted in the June 16th edition of EGG-NEWS and will provide an update on acreage of soybeans and corn
