OMAHA (DTN) -- The U.S. row-crop harvest entered the homestretch last week with just 5% of both corn and soybeans left to harvest as of Sunday, Nov. 21, USDA NASS said in its weekly Crop Progress report on Monday.
The nation's corn harvest progressed 4 percentage points last week to reach 95% complete as of Sunday, NASS estimated. That is 2 percentage points behind last year's 97% but 3 percentage points ahead of the five-year average of 92%.
"Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania had the slowest progress at 84% to 86% done," said DTN Senior Analyst Dana Mantini.

"The laggards are Kentucky, North Carolina and Tennessee, ranging from 77% to 85% done," Mantini said. "Iowa is 100% and Illinois 95% harvested."
Winter wheat planting inched ahead another 2 percentage points to reach 96% complete, 2 percentage points behind last year's pace and 1 percentage point behind the five-year average of 97%.
