Minnesota’s small-grain harvest is running well ahead of the average pace. In its weekly crop weather report for Minnesota, the USDA says that the spring wheat harvest was 17% complete as of Sunday, compared with none last year at this time and a 1% average. Small grains continued to be rated in primarily fair to good condition. Statewide, topsoil moisture supplies held relatively steady, and were rated 21% very short, 35% short, 40% adequate, and 4% surplus. Most crop condition ratings declined slightly, but corn and soybeans both remained in primarily fair to good condition. Corn and soybean development continues ahead of the averages. The sweet corn harvest advanced 6-percentage points to 9% complete.
