ST. PAUL (AP) — Another week of wet weather has held up crop progress across Minnesota.

Minnesota’s corn and soybean development continues to lag the five-year averages, but conditions have been improving.

The weekly crops and weather report for Minnesota from the U.S. Department of Agriculture says the statewide average corn height is 10 inches tall, compared with 32 inches last year and a five-year average of 21 inches. Corn condition improved slightly to 59 percent good to excellent, compared to 58 percent a week earlier. Corn planting is nearly finished at 96 percent complete, up 2 percentage points from a week earlier.

Despite the wet weather, soybean planting advanced 10 points to 94 percent complete. Soybean conditions are 58 percent good to excellent. Soybean emergence advanced 17 percentage points to 81 percent complete.
