When USDA's weekly 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 slipped 0.6 point to 366.8, while the soybean crop was virtually unchanged at 351.9 points. The CCI ratings are 6.3 points and 7.8 points below the five-year average for corn and soybeans, respectively.

The spring wheat CCI plunged another 9.8 points over the past week to just 243.9 points. Ratings declined in five of the six HRS states, paced by a 4.0-point decline in top producing North Dakota. The CCI rating is now 115.2 points below the five-year average for this date.
