USDA Crop Progress Report-- November 29, 2021
This is the last USDA update for the year. The next report comes out the first week of April.
The Winter Wheat Crop is 44% good to excellent. 23% of the crop is in poor to very poor condition.
In the top producing states, Texas has the worst crop, with nearly half of their crop poor to very poor, and one fifth good to excellent.
Kansas and Nebraska appear to have some of the best crops, with more than 60% good to excellent there.
Most of the harvest is wrapped up. Cotton, sorghum, and peanuts are entering their final rows.
Cotton has the most left to harvest, with 15% still in the field. Most of that is in Texas and the deep south.
Montana maintains the top ranking in soil moisture deficits. Most of the driest states have maintained their deficits throughout most of the growing season. However, some moisture is returning to the topsoil and subsoil as the deficit numbers are beginning to shrink back out of the 90% short to very short range.
