The corn crop in Minnesota is on track, with most parameters ahead of the five-year average.

Moving northwest, farmers have seen dry conditions, but cold weather has led to slowed emergence.
The latest USDA report has corn planting in Minnesota nearing completion, with 96 percent of acreage planted.
