Corn advanced to 88% planted as of Sunday which is 8% higher.  North Dakota and Missouri saw the biggest progress with advances to 90% and 57% completed respectively.  The amounts unplanted in ND and northern SD amount to about 2.3 mln acres of corn unplanted.  Initial corn conditions pegged at 70% Good/Excellent.  This is the 17th time the initial rating is at/above 70%.  Only 2 prior years saw below trend line yields following such a high initial rating.  These 2 years were 1991 and 2012.
