Two Percent Of Missouri Corn Not Yet Harvested
December 11, 2019 7:10AM CST
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.
