OMAHA (DTN) -- The nation's row-crop harvest and winter wheat planting progress slowed last week, USDA's National Ag Statistics Service said in its weekly Crop Progress report on Tuesday. The report is normally released on Mondays but was delayed this week due to Veterans Day.

As of Sunday, Nov. 11, 88% of the nation's soybeans were harvested, up just 5 percentage points from the previous week. That was 5 percentage points behind the five-year average of 93%.

States with a significant amount of the soybean crop still in the field included Missouri with 30% of its soybeans still unharvested, Kansas with 26% of its crop unharvested and Arkansas with 22% of its soybeans still in the field, noted DTN Analyst Todd Hultman.

Corn harvest ended the week at 84% complete, up 8 percentage points from the previous week. Harvest lagged last year by 3 percentage points and was 3 percentage points behind the five-year average of 87%. Seventeen percent of the crop was still unharvested in Iowa, and 23% of Nebraska's corn was still in the field, Hultman noted.

Winter wheat progress also remained behind normal last week. Eighty-nine percent of the crop was planted as of Sunday, behind last year's 94% and also behind the five-year average of 94%. Winter wheat emerged, at 77%, was behind both last year's pace of 83% and the average pace of 83%.

"Winter wheat planting reached 90% in Kansas, but is only 65% in Arkansas and 72% in Missouri," Hultman said.

NASS estimated 54% of the nation's winter wheat was in good-to-excellent condition, up 3 percentage points from 51% the previous week.

Seventy-three percent of the sorghum crop was harvested as of Sunday, behind 81% last year and 11 percentage points behind the five-year average of 84%.

Ninety-six percent of cotton had bolls opening as of Sunday, behind the average of 98%. Fifty-four percent of cotton was harvested, behind last year's 63% and also behind the average pace of 61%. NASS has stopped reporting the condition of the cotton crop this season.
