Weekly Corn Planting Progress

Last year’s shown in tan shows that we didn’t plant a lot of corn in the beginning of April.

50% of the US corn crop was planted in two weeks from about April 26th to May 10th. That is not likely to happen this year.

In general, if you get good planting conditions over a wide area of the US, we can plant 20% or more of the US crop on a good week. But we do not see a window allowing 20% to get planted next week or the following week.
