About the 2019 planting season

Only 68% of intended corn acres and 46% of intended soybean acres planted in Ohio

Consistent rains across Ohio and the Corn Belt continue to delay planting progress as the June 17 USDA Planting Progress report showed that 68% of intended corn acres and 46% of intended soybean acres have been planted in Ohio. 

Nationwide, roughly 27 million acres of corn and soybeans will either be planted or filed under prevented planting insurance. 

Across Ohio, the Final Plant Date (FPD) for soybeans is June 20.  Soybeans can be planted after the FPD, but a one percent reduction in the insurance guarantee occurs.
