OMAHA (DTN) -- An estimated 10% of the nation's corn crop and 9% of the soybean crop was left to harvest as of Sunday, Nov. 18, USDA's National Ag Statistics Service said in its weekly Crop Progress report on Monday.

 

Corn harvest ended last week at 90% complete, up 6 percentage points from the previous week. Harvest was near last year's pace of 89% complete but was 3 percentage points behind the five-year average of 93%.

 

"Corn harvest remains slower than usual with delays mainly in Iowa and the western Plains," said DTN Lead Analyst Todd Hultman.
