Corn and Spring wheat had declines from the extreme hot/dry weather in the N.Plains and westward(for the Spring wheat).
First soybean ratings were good in most places.......except the N.Plains dragged them DOWN.

U.S. #corn conditions drop 4 pts to 72% good/excellent and spring #wheat drops 5 pts to 38% g/e. Initial conditions for #soybeans come in at 67% g/e, below the trade estimate of 70%. That was pulled down heavily by a 25% g/e in North Dakota.

U.S. #soybeans in parts of the Eastern Belt, Delta and South are doing better than a year ago.
Upper Midwest is doing worse but not poorly. The Dakotas are terrible, and North Dakota at 25% good/excellent is 50 pts below a year ago. SD comes in at 45% g/e.

Terrible #corn conditions in the Dakotas are bringing down the national average, but some areas are actually doing better than a year ago (Eastern Belt, Kansas/Colorado).
Parts of Iowa and Minnesota have been too dry, so they don't look as good as last year, but they aren't bad.

U.S. #corn conditions dropped by 4 pts nationally to 72% good/excellent, but the top states are still doing well overall.
The same cannot be said for the Dakotas, where SD plunged 21 pts to 46% g/e. ND dropped 6 pts to 42%.
