The Weekly Crop Progress report from NASS showed corn and soybean planting continue to lag far behind the average pace.  As of June 2nd, corn planting is 67% complete and soybean planting is 39% complete.

The eastern states of Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio show the largest amount behind average as well as South Dakota.

Normally by this report, we would start seeing national corn crop condition ratings but due to slow development, it may be another week or two before we see those numbers.
