Illinois winter wheat planting, soybean harvest almost complete

Winter wheat planting and soybean harvest are nearly complete in Illinois.

The USDA reports as of Sunday 94% of soybeans are harvested, ahead of both last year and the five-year average. Corn harvest is a bit further behind at 88% complete, still ahead of average for the first week in November.

Winter wheat planting reached 95% complete and the agency rates the crop 34% good to excellent. That rating is drastically lower than the 81% good to excellent rating at this time last year, likely due to dry planting conditions in key growing areas this season.
