The USDA reports that corn conditions remain in a poor state. At this point into the growing season, there is little hope for improvement. Farmers will have to accept significantly lower yields, with some entitled to insurance payments as a result of the prolonged drought.
USDA Crop Production Report

This week's Crop Progress report shows that 50 per cent of corn is in poor or very poor condition, with Missouri struggling most with 84 per cent of it's corn crop in a poor state.

Conditions across the three "I" states remain sombre with Illinois among the hardest-hit states and the nation's second biggest corn and soybean grower.

Almost three-quarters of its corn crop and 57 per cent of Illinois soybeans are rated poor.

13 per cent of soybeans are in poor or very poor condition across 18 states, with 29 per cent considered good or excellent.

Soybeans across the three "I" states are faring better than corn, with around 30 per cent considered fair and one per cent classed as excellent in each of the three states.

The majority of both crops are grown in the Midwest where the drought is severe.
