Missouri Ag News Headlines
Missouri Corn and Soybean Condition as of September 10, 2023
Missouri Ag Connection - 09/13/2023

The corn harvest in Missouri is gaining momentum, with 9% of the crop harvested for grain as of September 10, 2023. This is ahead of the 5-year average of 6%.

The corn crop is in good condition overall, with 33% of the crop rated good and 27% rated fair. However, there are some areas of concern, with 16% of the crop rated very poor and 22% rated poor.

The soil moisture supply is declining, with 19% of the topsoil and 20% of the subsoil rated very short. This could impact the corn harvest in the coming weeks, if the dry weather continues.

Soybean conditions also improving

The soybean crop in Missouri is also improving, with 97% of the crop setting pods as of September 10. This is slightly ahead of the 5-year average of 92%.

Soybean condition is also good, with 39% of the crop rated good and 33% rated fair. Only 7% of the crop is rated very poor and 16% is rated poor.

The soybean crop is not as dependent on soil moisture as the corn crop, so the declining soil moisture supply is not as much of a concern for soybeans. However, the dry weather could still impact the soybean harvest if it continues for an extended period of time.

Overall, the corn and soybean crops in Missouri are in good condition and the harvest is progressing well. However, the declining soil moisture supply is a concern and could impact the harvest in the coming weeks.
