Posted by Colson Steber on 05/16/2017

 

At a glance, all crops had good planting progress since last week!

Corn is now at 71% planted, up 24% since last week.  MN is reporting 84% planted when they had only 35% planted last week.  The overall is still behind 2016’s progress but only by two percentage points.  NC is right on track with 93% planted, this is the same as their 2016 progress and five year average for this time of year.  NC is the only state reporting over 90% corn planted.  All states are reporting corn beginning to emerge.  Corn emergence is behind 2016’s progress by 10% for this time of year at 31% emerged overall.  Reflecting NC’s planting progress we see 86% of corn emerged already.

Soybeans planted is at 32% overall with LA and MS reporting over 80% planted.  All states are reporting at least 15% soybeans planted.  The planting progress is behind 2016’s progress by 2% and is the same as the five year average.  Only three states (MI, MN, and WI) are not reporting emerged soybeans.  All other states are beginning to see soybeans emerge.  Soybeans emerged are at 8% overall, behind the five year average and 2016 progress by only 1%.

Cotton planting is one third of the way through!  We are seeing steady planting progress with cotton.  AZ and LA are reporting over 80% planted.  For AZ this is behind the progress from 2016 while LA is ahead of last year’s progress.  Overall, the planting progress is behind previous years at 33% overall where in 2016 we saw 38% at this time of year and the five year average shows 37% planted for this time.

Sorghum planting continues, not much progress was made through the week.  We are seeing 32% planted overall with AZ reporting 82% planted and LA reporting 93% planted.  All sorghum states are now planting.  SD started planting this week and is already reporting 15% planted. 

Rice planting is quickly coming to a close already.  LA is reporting 99% planted and AR is reporting 95%.  Overall progress is at 83% planted.  We saw MO finished with planting at this time in 2016 while they are reporting 84% planted.  CA made some good progress through the week, going from 3% planted to 27%.  CA is the only state not reporting over 80% rice planted.  Rice emergence is at 73% overall (CA reporting 0% emerged since planting just recently started kicking off) down 2% from last year but up 8% compared to the five year average!

Sugarbeet planting is wrapping up, we are seeing 96% planted overall with MN reporting 100%.  It was a strong week with all states showing good planting progress.  Noticeably is MI with 93% planted when last week they were furthest behind at 48% planted!  Overall progress is behind 2016’s by only 1% and ahead of the five year average by 15%.

Spring wheat planting is nearing the end as well.  SD and MN are reporting over 90% planted with SD reporting 99%.  MT showed strong progress through the week going from 46% planted to 77%, an increase of 31%.  Compared to 2016’s progress 2017 is behind by 9% but comparing to the five year average, this year’s progress is up 5%.

Peanut planting is very close to reaching the halfway point for the season.  We are seeing 43% planted overall, identical to 2016’s progress.  All states had a good week of planting, an overall increase of 18% planted with each state reporting progress ranging from 13-21% more planted than last week.
