Yesterday, USDA reported that 65% of the U.S. corn crop has been harvested, which is up almost 20% from last week’s 46% harvested.

That puts this year’s corn harvest 6% behind last year and 8% behind the 5-year average. 

Soybeans harvested is at 83%, which is in line with the 5-year average and only 2% behind last year.
