Crop Progress Report

Illinois Weather and Crop Report says 17% of corn is planted statewide.  It is surprising that it is not more, but the numbers appear to be accurate for our area.  It says we have 40% planted.  I would say we have more than 5% emerged.

Wheat is still looking good where I have been.  Some of it could have used more nitrogen.  8% of wheat is headed state wide.  I have not seen any heads peeking out yet, but it was in the boot stage in Monroe County yesterday.  Where does that put wheat harvest?  Should be a great year for double crop soybeans if there is any moisture at all. 

St. Charles County Missouri seemed to match West Southwest, IL stats pretty well.  Soil was moist to wet in that area today.
