USDA’s final weekly Crop Progress Report for 2019 indicates that two percent of Missouri’s corn and cotton crop is still in the ground. It marks the statistical end of a year fraught with delays in planting and harvest stemming from above-average precipitation for most of the state and flooding along major waterways. Nationwide, just five of the 18 major corn-producing states have completed their harvest, compared to nine this time a year ago. Harvest in North Dakota was only 43 percent complete as of Sunday.
