Reading Time: < 1 minute

The U.S. Department of Agriculture last Monday confirmed hard red winter wheat crop’s slow deterioration due to dry weather, rating 38 per cent of winter wheat in poor to very poor shape as of Apr. 17 versus 36 per cent in that category a week earlier. USDA also pegged spring wheat seedings at just five per cent, lagging the average pace of 12 per cent amid overly wet conditions and flooding in the northern U.S. Plains where the spring crop is grown.
