Snowfall in the US corn and soybean areas

Cold and snowfall in the US Corn / Soybean growing region finished the harvest work wholly or partly

A surprisingly early onset of winter has the last US harvesting off - or interrupted. According to the Nov. 17 2014, 89% of corn areas and 94% of the soybean areas have been harvested. The remaining crop surface are been brought after the first cold snap in more dry weather in the last week now but by the snowfall. However, the snow cover have fallen from different. Especially in the States South of the Great Lakes, the delay in harvesting was particularly large and went strong amounts of snow down here. It must be expected in this area with larger than average outages.

On sites with low snow depth is again warmer weather next week still a part of the stand remained maize can be harvested. It is only important that occur not strong gusts of wind, which cause the stalks to the wrinkles. Camp corn is only limited to acquire the harvesters.

For the soy stocks it looks worse, however, because the plants of less State assets compared with the snow load have and go faster on the ground. While the pods can burst, so hardly with a rewarding harvest can be calculated.

Nothing out of the ordinaryis that corn and soybean stocks not can be harvested due to early onset of winter in the United States. Normally, is expected to harvest land losses between 5 and 10%. Is therefore calculated on the occasion the harvest estimates with already on average reduced harvesting areas instead of the cultivation.

To what extent the current snowfall at higher than average crop losses, contributes is still open, because parts of the surfaces could be harvested in the next period. On the exchanges, the onset of winter has aroused only limited attention.

On the other hand was the snowfall also quite welcome, because the winter crops are in this way before the frost with patchy to-20 degrees Celsius protected. This is especially in this year of importance, because late ordering dates have led to weak stocks. A conceivable Kahl frost would have resulted in above-average Dewinterizing damage.  You can estimate only what happens under the snow in the spring.
