The USDA’s national crop condition ratings for corn and soybeans were down on the week. The ratings for both crops show the impact of a wide range of weather, from drought or near drought conditions to last week’s derecho.

As of Sunday, 64% of U.S. corn is in good to excellent shape, 5% less than a week ago, with 88% at the dough making stage, compared to the five-year average of 82%, 44% dented, compared to 39% on average, and 5% having reached maturity, matching the usual pace.
