Posted on 08/05/2019 3:21 PM

When USDA's weekly crop condition ratings are plugged into the weighted Pro Farmer Crop Condition Index (CCI; 0 to 500-point scale, with 500 representing perfect), the corn crop dropped 1.9 points to 350.2, while the soybean crop improved 0.9 point to 339.3. Both crops remain well below their five-year average CCI ratings for the beginning of August – corn is 27.6 points below and soybeans are 24.6 points below. The spring wheat CCI rating slipped 1.3 points to 378.6, though that’s still 21.0 points above the five-year average for the beginning of August.
