Flooded field (copy)

A field that was planted is now flooded in Pepin County, Wisconsin.

The door is rapidly shutting on 2019 U.S. corn planting and production. Flooding, wet, soggy and cool conditions have kept tractors and planters out of the fields.

USDA estimated that 67 percent of the 2019 corn crop was planted as of June 2, compared to the five-year-average of 96 percent.

The 2019 Corn Crop Insurance final planting dates have already passed for Iowa, Southern Minnesota and Wisconsin (May 31) with portions of South Dakota, Nebraska and Kansas passed even earlier (May 25). Only Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio still have until June 5 to plant corn without risking their Prevent Planting coverage.

Farmers can plant corn after the final planting date, during the late planting period, and still receive crop insurance coverage. However, the crop insurance coverage will be reduced 1 percent per day after the final planting date, for 25 days (the late planting period).
