AgriVisor Morning MarketWatch

Tuesday, June 07, 2022
As of Sunday night the US corn crop was 94% planted and 78% emerged, taking most concern away from the initial delays to the season. The US corn crop has an initial rating of 73% Good to Excellent, with just 4% of the crop rated as poor. These numbers call for little additional risk premium at this time. The US soybean crop is now 78% planted and 56% emerged, both very close to the five-year average. Spring wheat planting made a jump on the week and now stands at 82% complete, with emergence at 55%. On winter wheat the crop is now rated 30% Good/Excellent, another slight improvement on the week. Harvest of the winter wheat crop is at 5%. The US pasture condition is still just 28% Good/Excellent. We are now at a point in the crop report cycle where less interest will be placed on planting and more on crop condition. This will gradually build over the next several weeks. Now is also when we see private analysts use crop ratings to try and determine overall production. History has shown production is very difficult to predict using crop ratings, but we can form an overall opinion on crop potential. Given the need for large crops of both corn and soybeans this year, we will likely see more attention on weekly reports than in most years.
