Wheat harvest progressing in U.S., rain helps corn and soybean conditions

USDA reports the spring wheat harvest is now 11% complete. That is 3% behind the five-year average of 14%.

South Dakota leads the way at 38% harvested, while North Dakota is at 2%.

USDA said 41% of the spring wheat crop was rated good to excellent.  

Winter wheat harvest in the U.S. is now 87% complete. That is right in line with the 5 year average for this time of year. 

Meanwhile USDA says widespread rains this past weekend and a break from the extreme heat helped corn and soybean conditions rebound.

Corn was rated 57% good to excellent, up 2% from last week. 

Soybeans were rated 54% good to excellent also up 2% from last week.
