According to the USDA NASS crop condition report, corn and soybeans remain on track for a high yielding harvest.

The two states that continue to have low ratings in the good to excellent range are Michigan and Ohio.

The report contains 18 of the states that produced over 90 percent of the corn and soybean crop in 2015.

Both the corn and soybean crops remain above average when it comes to the condition. The majority of the corn crop is in the dented stage and the soybean crop is setting pods.
