June 14, 2015: U.S. and Colorado Crop Condition Report

CROP PROGRESS AND CONDITION
WEEK ENDING JUNE 14, 2015
AGRICULTURAL SUMMARY:

Planting activities and emergence of crops have made significant progress as temperatures climbed last week in most localities. Scattered precipitation events were sustained in some areas, reportedly causing localized delays in the northeast and southwestern districts. Strong thunderstorms and localized hail were associated with several storm systems in the
southeastern district. The abundance of heat and moisture have generally improved crop conditions. However, reporters noted persisting concerns of stripe rust on wheat and other fungal disease in areas where surplus soil moisture and cool temperatures have occurred in greater frequency. Stored feed supplies were rated 2 percent very short, 6 percent short, 84 percent adequate, and 8 percent surplus. Sheep death loss was rated 64 percent average and 36 percent light. Cattle death loss was rated 1 percent heavy, 77 percent average, and 22 percent light.
