Soybean harvest wraps up
With 96 percent of soybeans harvested, the 2012 soybean season has come to an end. In one of its last Crop Progress reports of the year, the USDA showed that though the progress is slightly above the five-year average of 93 percent, it is on track with last year’s pace of 95 percent.
Eleven of the top 18 producing states are reporting between 97 and 100 percent of soybeans harvested. Most of the other states are within 11 percentage points of wrapping up soybean harvest this year. The only exception: North Carolina.
Just 36 percent of soybeans in the Tar Heel State have been harvested, which is slightly behind last year’s report and the five-year average of 41 percent. Click here to read more.
