USDA's weekly crop progress reports are back.

 Spring planting is in the early stages with #corn at 2% and spring #wheat at 3%. 

Winter wheat as of Sunday is rated 53% good/excellent - exactly what analysts expected - up from 46% at the end of November.


Just an FYI for anyone new here, "3% trade" next to the corn planting number, for example, indicates that the trade estimate was 3%. Reuters conducts those surveys midday each Monday.

If the current weather holds here in northern Iowa we will have a nearly perfect planting season. 

I have seeded the oats and I imagine there are folks  ready to go on the corn.

A rain this week will be welcomed and we will be off to the races when it dries off.
