National conditions for
#soybeans stayed at 54% good/excellent this week. Very lousy conditions in Ohio (28% g/e), Indiana (37% g/e), and Missouri (38% g/e). Most states had a small delta on the week but they all offset.
Emergence is still slow for
#soybeans in these states:
Ohio 62% (45% last wk, 97% avg)
Missouri 63% (51% last wk, 86% avg)
Michigan 67% (48% last wk, 97% avg)
Indiana 73% (56% last wk, 96% avg)
Illinois 78% (67% last wk, 96% avg
Even if all those acres the USDA says were planted, were actually planted, it’s still going to be a rough summer for grains.
There are fields around here in Ohio where the grass is higher than the corn.
