Marketline Report for Wednesday, June 19th
SHELLADY ... "Let's talk about corn for a second. Yesterday, we had crop progress and emergence. The Crop Progress Report number came out at 92%, planted. That was what the trade expected. There's been debate on whether that number's real or not, but that's the number we have to use so that's the number we're going to go with. The five year average is 100% so it's all in the ground by now and I talked to some guys down south that would expect corn would be tasseling in the next week or two. So, that'll give you a good idea about how far behind we are. That leaves about 7.2-million acres unplanted. Now, again, that's another hotly contested number, but that's the number that we've been given by the government so we're going to have to go with that, but that's also going to be a problem."
