Weekly crop progress shows producers continue to put the crops in ahead of the 5-year average but behind last year’s pace.

Corn planting is 75% complete nationally compared to 82% last year and 70% on average.  Eastern cornbelt states of Indiana, Ohio, and Michigan are furthest behind.

Corn emerged is 43% vs. 48% last year and 34% on average.

Soybean planting is 36% complete vs. 41% last year and 32% on average. Soybean emergence is at 10% vs. 11% last year and 9% on average.

Minnesota soybean emergence is also at 9%.  Probably a good thing it isn’t any further along considering the freezing weather over the past weekend.
