Farmers had planted 71 percent on the U.S. corn crop by May 19, a giant leap forward from just 28 percent planted a week ago and nearly caught up to the five-year average of 79 percent planted by this time in the 18 major corn producing states.

Last year, which was an unusually early planting season, 95 percent of the crop was planted, according to USDA’s weekly Crop Progress Report.

USDA reported 19 percent of the U.S. corn crop in the major producing states had emerged by May 19, compared to 5 percent a week ago and 46 percent emerged by this time on average over the past five years.
