Weâ€™re into November, and thereâ€™s still some corn left to harvest.
Corn is 83 percent harvested, up 9 points from last week, according to the weekly USDA crop progress report. Crop statistician Mark Schleusener says in some cases, farmers have left corn un-harvested because they want it to lose some moisture before they take it to the elevator.
â€śIf thereâ€™s another factor besides that, it would be that some producers are large enough that itâ€™s just hard to get it all done. They may also be shifting over to soybeans, which have reached 92 percent complete harvest because theyâ€™re a little bit more fragile. A good wind storm can shatter the pods and put the beans on the ground,â€ť he said.
Winter wheat is now 95 percent planted and 75 percent emerged.
