Corn harvest just below 100 percent
Ninety-six percent of corn in the top 18 producing states has now been harvest according to the USDA’s latest Crop Progress report released on Monday afternoon. Although this week’s progress is 8 percentage points above the five-year average, it is also behind last year’s pace.
This time last year 12 states reported 100 percent of corn harvested, and the four of the states were within 4 percentage points of being finished with harvest. This year, seven states have reported 100% of corn harvested with five states within 3 percentage points of being finished with the 2011 corn harvest season. Check the report to see how your state is doing.

For other grain, 100 percent of soybeans and 91 percent of sorghum have been harvested. Eighty-seven percent of winter wheat has emerged.
