If you're itching to get back into the field to get your 2011 crop planted, one look at the weather for the next couple weeks indicates you might not want to hold your breath. It may be a little while before you can get back into the field.
Though progress looks to be grinding to a halt this week in much of the Midwest, farmers were busy the last week planting corn and soybeans, according to Monday's USDA-NASS Crop Progress report.
As of Sunday, 79% of the nation's corn crop is planted, up 16% over the previous week, while 41% of the soybean crop's in the ground, up from 22% a week ago, according to Monday's report. The corn planting progress range is wide in the Corn Belt, from 98% complete in Iowa to 11% in Ohio.
Take a look at Monday's USDA-NASS Crop Progress report and you'll see numbers where there were blanks not long ago: The "Corn Mature -- Selected States" chart shows that upwards of half or more of the corn crop is mature -- and being combined -- in the Deep and mid-south, and it won't be long until there are combines kicking up dust in the Corn Belt (weather permitting).
The weather has begun to cooperate in parts of the Corn Belt.
Now, though some farmers in the eastern Corn Belt are waiting on drier weather, others are starting to shift attention from corn to soybeans, with some states' farmers working toward the halfway point for beans this week.
Fall harvest is ahead of schedule in much of the nation's midsection, but with widespread rain expected in parts of the Corn Belt over the weekend and into next week, market-watchers have weather on the mind, both at home and abroad. And, that could mean the grains' rally over the last few days could continue for the foreseeable future.
Behind the momentum is more than just harvest-delaying rain in the U.S.
Even the weather experts are sitting around the radar-room talking about the vast amount of world crop-weather issues.
