ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The U.S. Department of Agriculture says Illinois' latest crop of corn and soybeans is shaping up.
The USDA says in its weekly crop-status update that 81 percent of the state's corn is rated as either good or excellent.
That's just slightly better than the condition of Illinois soybeans. The USDA considers three-quarters of that crop to be in good or excellent shape.
Some 90 percent of the state's wheat harvest is now complete, in line with the average pace of the previous five years.
