( )

When USDA’s weekly crop condition ratings are plugged into the weighted Pro Farmer Crop Condition Index (0 to 500-point scale, with 500 being perfect), the HRW crop dropped 6.5 points to 252.7, the lowest rating of the year and 73.8 points below the five-year average. The SRW crop improved 10.8 points to 357.1, its highest rating this spring, though that’s still 1.2 points below average for this date.
