OMAHA (DTN) -- Three percent of the nation's corn crop was planted as of April 13, according to USDA's latest weekly Crop Progress report, and it's no surprise that most of that was in the Southern states.

Texas reported 57% of its corn crop in the ground, North Carolina 20%, Kansas 11%, Missouri 9%. Illinois and Nebraska both reported 1% of their corn planted.

Last year at this time 2% of the U.S. corn crop was planted and the five-year average is 6%.

"This report could be viewed as neutral to bullish," said DTN Senior Analyst Darin Newsom.
