The condition of the U.S. corn and soybean crops as of Aug. 7 varied very little from the that seen in the past several weeks, which means both crops could be on pace for record-setting harvests.

According to USDA, 74% of corn acres are in “good” (54%) or “excellent” (20%) condition through this past Sunday. This compares with 76% the previous week and 70% last year at this time.

Nearly all (97%) of the corn crop is silking, which is up 6% from the previous week, 3% on this date last year and the 5-year average of 94%.

Over half (53%) of corn is currently in the dough stage vs. 30% last week and 44% a year ago. The 5-year average for this date is 42%. Meanwhile, 9% of U.S. corn acres are in the “dented” stage, which is 3% behind the 5-year average and 1% ahead of last year’s crop.

The condition of the soybean crop is rated as 72% “good” (55%) or “excellent” (17%). This is the same as condition from the previous week when 56% was rated as “good” and 16% as “excellent.” Last year on this date, only 63% of the soybean crop was rated as “good” (49%) or “excellent” (14%).

With 91% of soybeans “blooming,” this year’s crop is up from the 86% a year ago and the 5-year average of 88%. Soybean acres “setting pods” are estimated to be 69% vs. 54% the previous week, 65% a year earlier and the 5-year average of 61%.
