According to the USDA’s latest “Crop Progress” report, 91 percent of the country’s corn has been harvested, compared to 84 percent last week and the national five-year average of 86 percent.

Just four states are below their five-year corn harvest average – Kentucky (94 percent), Michigan (75 percent), Tennessee (98 percent) and Wisconsin (74 percent).

Soybeans are still slightly behind their national five-year average with 95 percent complete. Most of the states, while progressing faster that corn harvest, are still behind their state’s five-year average. Of the nine states trailing their average, half are within less than 2 percentage points.

Two states – Kentucky and Tennessee – are behind their state’s average by 18 percentage points.
