Crop Progress, 2020 feels like 2019

Conditions are looking very similar to last year. With great moisture in the ground, planting progress starting behind in April then getting all caught up before June. There should be an excellent opportunity for our overseas friends to buy some premium Spring Wheat at a decent price. 

Crop Progress: Spring Wheat and Durum Planting Advances 25% in Montana.

A lot of progress was made last week in Montana. Barley progress increased 15% now at 79% which is on par with the 5-year average. Durum and Spring Wheat being much of the focus last week for many farmers. We saw Spring Wheat jumping 25% up to 75% planted with the 5-year average being at 77%, Durum moving up 28% to 54% but still being slightly behind average of 67%.

Crop Progress, Catch Up
