Minnesota’s corn and soybean crops are maturing a bit faster than usual. In its weekly crop report for Minnesota, the USDA says that 26% of the soybean crop has reached the turning yellow stage or beyond. That’s 18-percentage points ahead of the 5-year average. Soybeans were rated 80% in fair to good condition, compared to 81% a week earlier. Seventy-five percent of corn has reached the dent stage or beyond, compared with 50% last week and a 35% average. Corn condition was 76% fair to good, compared to 77% the previous week. Most of the state recorded below-normal precipitation last week as well.
