2013 Winter Wheat Crop Now 57{8a1275384cb93b18aa3d41af404144e37302a793dec468d70d54c97b65cfac05} Planted


OMAHA (DTN) — Nearly 70{8a1275384cb93b18aa3d41af404144e37302a793dec468d70d54c97b65cfac05} of the nation's corn crop has been harvested and USDA no longer includes corn conditions in its weekly Crop Progress and Conditions report. But that's a moot point, as the ratings of the ahead-of-normal crop ceased having any real market impact weeks ago.

Soybeans were estimated at 58{8a1275384cb93b18aa3d41af404144e37302a793dec468d70d54c97b65cfac05} harvested compared to 42{8a1275384cb93b18aa3d41af404144e37302a793dec468d70d54c97b65cfac05} last year and a 40{8a1275384cb93b18aa3d41af404144e37302a793dec468d70d54c97b65cfac05} five-year average. Soybean condition ratings were virtually unchanged, with just a slight shift toward the better end of the scale. These numbers also will mean little to the market.

Winter wheat planting advanced to 57{8a1275384cb93b18aa3d41af404144e37302a793dec468d70d54c97b65cfac05} complete and 23{8a1275384cb93b18aa3d41af404144e37302a793dec468d70d54c97b65cfac05} emerged, compared to 53{8a1275384cb93b18aa3d41af404144e37302a793dec468d70d54c97b65cfac05} and 24{8a1275384cb93b18aa3d41af404144e37302a793dec468d70d54c97b65cfac05} last year and 59{8a1275384cb93b18aa3d41af404144e37302a793dec468d70d54c97b65cfac05} and 30{8a1275384cb93b18aa3d41af404144e37302a793dec468d70d54c97b65cfac05} averages, respectively. Many winter wheat areas still need additional moisture to bolster the crop before winter.
