U.S. Department of Agriculture releases annual corn harvest information

U.S. Department of Agriculture releases annual corn harvest information.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture reported on Monday that corn harvests conditions have remained unchanged from last year.

Ten percent of the corn crop has been harvested as of Sunday, with 68 percent rated as good or excellent. So far this year, North Carolina has the highest percentage of crop harvested with 70 percent as of Sunday’s report. Colorado and Wisconsin have only reported one percent of crops harvested.

“Every week, the information we gain from combines actually in the fields provides an increasingly accurate vision of what we will find in our bins after harvest,” said National Corn Growers Association’s President Chip Bowling, a grower from Maryland. “I find it heartening to know that the crop condition report remains strong even though many had issues with flooding earlier in the season. While U.S. farmers work to bring in another abundant, sustainable crop, NCGA continues its work to create demand and grow opportunities for corn farmers.”

Only two states have not reported their harvest amounts but Texas, Tennessee and Kentucky have reported high percentage of acres harvested. Along with North Carolina, the four states are the top producers of corn harvest so far this year. Texas reported 61 percent, Tennesee reported 43 percent and Kentucky reported 35 percent of acres harvested as of Sunday.
