U.S crop condition ratings improved slightly for corn and remained steady for soybeans last week.

 

The USDA says 58 percent of corn is rated good to excellent, one percent higher than a week ago, but nine percent below a year ago.

 

Soybeans in the good to excellent category stayed at 55 percent, which is 11 percent lower than this time last year.

 

Crop development continues to trail the usual pace.

 

Corn in the dent stage is at 41 percent as of Sunday, compared to the five-year average of 63 percent.

A new analysis by Nebraska Farm Bureau estimates the ongoing retaliatory tariffs imposed by countries on U.S. ag exports will cost Nebraska producers 943 million dollars in lost revenues in 2019.

 

Soybeans and corn account for most of those losses, with Nebraska soybean producers losing nearly 590 million dollars and corn growers about 250 million dollars.

 

Nebraska Farm Bureau economist Jay Rempe says Market Facilitation Program payments to producers have helped, but they don’t cover all of their losses.

 

“The MFP payments, based on last year and what I’m seeing this year, may be 60 to 65 percent of the loss to the farmers on the ground,” Rempe says.
