Condition ratings fall in Arkansas


A lack of soil moisture is pulling condition ratings lower in Arkansas.

The USDA says 54% of the corn crop is called good to excellent, 8% less than last week, with silking nearly complete, dough making and denting behind schedule, and maturity matching the five-year average.

62% of soybeans are rated good to excellent, 7% lower, with emergence over for the season and blooming and pod setting close to normal.

64% of cotton is in good to excellent shape, a decline of 9%, with squaring and boll setting both slower than the respective typical paces.
