When the door won’t open you take the window. That may be the big take away from this week’s Crop Progress Report. With a small window corn and soybean planting made leaps last week. Corn planting was 83% complete and the portion of the crop that had emerged was rated 59% in good-to-excellent condition as of Sunday, June 9. Nebraska corn now sets at 94% planted just 5% back from the 5 year average.

For soybean planting was 60% complete, but that remains 31% behind the five year average. Of the crop that is planted  34% of it has emerged 29% behind the five year average.

New to this week’s report is winter wheat harvest now at 4% harvested nationally. Nebraska and Kansas have yet to harvest any wheat, but the crop looks good at 69% & 68% good to excellent ratings.

Top soil moisture remains abundant in Nebraska at 99% adequate to surplus.

The planting struggle continues across much of the mid west. Ahead of this week’s crop progress report analysts expected 71% corn planting and 42% of soybean planting complete. USDA came in jsut short of both estimates at with corn planting at 67% complete and soybean planting 39% complete as of Sunday, June 2.

Spring wheat closed the gap with the five year average in planting, gaining 9% week to week. Winter wheat also came back in quality going from 61% good to excellent last week to 64% good to excellent.

OMAHA (DTN) — U.S. corn, soybean and spring wheat planting fell further behind the average pace last week as wet, cool conditions persisted in parts of the Midwest and Upper Midwest, according to USDA NASS’ weekly Crop Progress report on Monday.

As of Sunday, an estimated 23% of the nation’s corn was planted, behind 36% at the same time last year and 23 percentage points behind the five-year average of 46%. That was further behind normal than the previous week when corn planting was 12 percentage points behind average.

“Noticeable progress was made in Nebraska, Iowa and Kansas,” noted DTN Senior Analyst Dana Mantini. “Key states of Minnesota, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio are well behind the five-year average, and South Dakota has yet to start.”

Corn emerged was estimated at 6%, near 7% last year but 6 percentage points behind the five-year average of 13%.

Soybean planting progress also slipped further behind the average pace. As of Sunday, an estimated 6% of the crop was planted, down from last year’s 14% and 8 percentage points behind the five-year average of 14%. In last week’s report, soybean planting was 3 percentage points behind average.

Soybean planting is still mainly occurring in Southern states, Mantini said. “However, Nebraska is 1 percentage point above the average at 14%, Iowa is at 8% compared to an 11% average, but Minnesota has zero planted compared to a 15% average.”

Spring wheat planting, too, continued to fall further behind the five-year average. NASS estimated that 22% of spring wheat was planted as of Sunday, 27 percentage points behind the five-year average of 49%. In last Monday’s report, planting was 20 percentage points behind average.

“Idaho and Washington are each 72% done, while little progress is being made in key states, with North Dakota at 13% versus 37% average, Minnesota at only 7% done versus 51% average and South Dakota at 19% compared to a 76% average,” Mantini said.

Winter wheat was 29% headed as of Sunday, near last year’s 31% but down 12 percentage points from the five-year average of 41%.

Winter wheat condition held steady last week at 64% good to excellent. “However, the portion that was rated ‘excellent’ dropped by 3 percentage points, moving into the ‘good’ category,” Mantini said.

The condition of the crop in top-winter-wheat-producing state Kansas also held steady from the previous week, at 58% good to excellent. In other major winter-wheat-growing states, 74% of Oklahoma’s crop and 63% of Texas’ crop was rated in good-to-excellent condition.

“States in the eastern Midwest show poor-to-very-poor winter wheat ratings in the double digits, with key states Illinois at just 38% good to excellent and 20% poor to very poor and Ohio at 30% good to excellent but 30% poor to very poor also.”

Sorghum was 22% planted, compared to 29% last year and a five-year average of 29%. Cotton planting was 18% complete, compared to 19% last year and an average of 19%. Rice was 48% planted, compared to 66% last year and an average of 69%. Thirty-five percent of rice was emerged, compared to 42% last year and an average of 50%.

Oats were 50% planted as of May 5, compared to 54% last year and an average of 72%. Oats emerged were at 36%, compared to 33% last year and an average of 51%.
