Our Region (Kinda) Gets Crops in Ground


The latest government snapshot of the Kansas wheat crop shows the condition of the state’s wheat crop continues to decline, which has been a bullish factor for our markets.

As we’re setting up for another interesting weather week in our region, the numbers as of this past Sunday from the local NASS field offices show that Montana’s winter wheat is slowly coming out of dormancy.  52{dfeadfe70caf58f453a47791a362966239aaa64624c42b982d70b175f7e3dda2} of the crop is now greening with 16{dfeadfe70caf58f453a47791a362966239aaa64624c42b982d70b175f7e3dda2} greening and growing.  Things are also slowly making their way into the ground.  6{dfeadfe70caf58f453a47791a362966239aaa64624c42b982d70b175f7e3dda2} of the beets and barley are in the ground as is 2{dfeadfe70caf58f453a47791a362966239aaa64624c42b982d70b175f7e3dda2} of the spring wheat.  See Full MT Report

The start date for planting keeps getting pushed back in North Dakota.  Normally this is the week where we’d see something start to happen, but the average starting date isn’t expected to be until May 5 this year.  See Full ND Report
