( )

When USDA’s initial weekly condition ratings of the spring are plugged into the weighted Pro Farmer Crop Condition Index (CCI; 0 to 500-point scale, with 500 representing perfect), the corn crop starts the growing season 0.8 point above last year at this time, though 5.4 points below the initial 2021 rating that came a week earlier. The initial corn CCI rating is 6.5 points above the five-year average for the first week of June.
