Idaho Crop Progress Update
USDA reported Idaho’s Winter Wheat crop is rated 91 percent good to excellent and 6 percent of the crop is rated fair.
Cool weather accompanied by frost, snow, and wind caused major concerns for many crops throughout the state. Most of the spring wheat has been planted with small pockets in the North and East lagging behind due to extreme weather conditions.
