The U.S. corn harvest is likely to be delayed by two to three weeks on average in the marketing year ending August 2020, pushed behind schedule due to historic delays in plantings on the back of inclement weather, sources said.

According to an S&P Global Platts report, harvest of southern corn, which typically begins in early August, will be on track, but the Midwest corn harvest will likely to be 2 to 3 weeks later than normal this year, said Arlan Suderman, chief commodity economist with INTL FCStone.

At present corn growth and development is approximately 7 to 14 days behind schedule, says Mark Licht, assistant professor and extension cropping systems specialist with Iowa State University.
