“In general, planting paces have moved slightly ahead of their slow early starts in 2018 and have lost most of their concerns,” DTN Analyst Todd Hultman said. “92% of U.S. corn has been planted, slightly ahead of its five-year average with only Michigan and Pennsylvania reporting significant delays from their five-year averages. USDA’s good-to-excellent rating of 79% results in a DTN Corn Condition Index of 188, the highest since 2007.”
