Status of 2018 Corn and Soybean Crops

08/06/2018

The USDA Crop Progress Report released on August 6th documented complete emergence of the 2018 corn and soybean crops. Corn is denting at 12 percent of the crop and at double the 5-year average. Soybeans planted early are blooming consistent with good soil moisture and climate conditions, leading the 5-year average by six percent. Approximately 75 percent of the soy crop is setting pods, 17 percent ahead of the 5-year average. EGG-NEWS and CHICK-NEWS will report on the progress of the two major crops as monitored by the USDA through the end of harvest in October.
