WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — The latest U.S. Department of Agriculture Crop Progress report says corn and soybean crops in Indiana and Ohio are in the best shape among the nation's leading production states.

Purdue Extension agricultural economist Chris Hurt estimates with current crop conditions, U.S. yields would average about 156 bushels per acre on corn and 43 bushels per acre for soybeans. But he says weather conditions are expected to improve during the next two weeks and that could improve yield prospects.

As of Monday's USDA Crop Progress report, 82 percent of Ohio's corn crop was rated good to excellent, while 76 percent of Indiana corn rated good to excellent. Ohio soybeans rated 78 percent good to excellent and 72 percent of Indiana soybeans rate good to excellent.
