U.S. spring #wheat planting was behind average pace (62-63% in recent years) on May 10 at 42%. Top state North Dakota (27% complete) trails last year's progress of 30%. ND should have passed halfway by now, but it's still so wet.Image

Some of the corn over the last few days. Crops are out and the farmers are mostly pleased. Upcoming warmth will help. The first 6 CW20 corn fields were planted April 18-May 3. Ohio may get in early next week and North Dakota is still a big question mark.
