Weekly Minnesota Crop Report 25 Jun 13

Another week of wet weather has held up crop progress across Minnesota. The state’s corn and soybean development continues to lag behind the 5-year averages, but conditions have been improving. The latest USDA weekly crop report for Minnesota says the statewide average corn height is 10-inches tall, compared with 32-inches last year and a 5-year average of 21-inches. Corn condition improved slightly to 59% good to excellent, and corn planting is nearly finished at 96% complete, up 2 percentage points from a week earlier. Despite the wet weather, soybean planting advanced 10 points to 94% complete as well.
