US Soybean and Corn harvest progress behind

#1 Post by anomalous howard » Mon Nov 05, 2018 11:44 pm

As of Sunday, Nov. 4, 83% of the nation's soybeans were harvested, up 11 percentage points from the previous week. That was 6 percentage points behind the five-year average of 89%, an improvement from the previous week when harvest lagged the average pace by 9 points.

However, the soybean harvest is still behind the five-year average pace in more states than it is ahead, noted DTN Analyst Todd Hultman.

"Kansas remains the most distressed, at 63% harvested compared to a five-year average of 82%, with Arkansas a close second at 72% harvested," Hultman said.

Corn harvest ended the week at 76% complete, up 13 percentage points from the previous week. It was the first time this season that corn harvest fell behind the average pace, which is 77% for this time of year.
