Crop Progress Notes for Cotton – November 12

The 2019 harvest season progressed nicely in the past week, based on numbers from USDA’s Crop Progress report for the week ending November 10.

Once again, cotton harvest is the only report for cotton. It showed that 62% of the U.S. crop has now been harvested – a 9% increase in the past week and 3% of the 5-year average for this date.


All cotton producing states showed strong progress leading into the current cold weather pattern, with increases of 5% or more in all states – led by Oklahoma (up 17%), North Carolina (up 15%) and Missouri and Virginia (both up 11%).

In all, nine states are either on or above their 5-year average.
