Weekly Crop Progress
USDA's Weekly Crop Progress reports indicate the condition of crops in the United States. Each week during the growing season from April to November the statisticians from the five top corn producing states in the nation deliver audio reports to the U of I College of ACES for redistribution. WILLAg pacakages them together and puts them ON AIR during the Tuesday Closing Market Report. The reports often contain a bit more than the raw numbers.
These are a great source for "what's happening on the ground and in the field". You can listen to this week's report using the link below.
