Corn planting appears to be precisely on pace with the five-year average overall according to a report released today by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. With three percent of total corn acres planted by April 9, progress paralleled the five-year average for this point and sat only one percentage point behind planting progress recorded at this point in 2016.
Progress surpassed the five-year average in Texas by nine percentage points. Tennessee saw the greatest lags in progress with acres planted a full nine percentage points lower than the five-year average.
