OMAHA (DTN) -- U.S. winter wheat's good-to-excellent rating gained back last week what it lost the previous week, according to USDA NASS' weekly Crop Progress report released Monday. This is the final weekly Crop Progress report of 2020.

After falling 3 percentage points to 43% the previous week, wheat's good-to-excellent rating rose 3 percentage points last week to reach 46% as of Sunday, Nov. 29. That remains below 52% at the same time a year ago.

"The lowest winter wheat ratings continue to be found in the hard red winter wheat areas of the southwestern U.S. Plains, but improvement was seen," said DTN Senior Analyst Dana Mantini. "Kansas is at 33% good to excellent, up 4 points; Colorado is 20% good to excellent, up 3 points; Texas is 32%, up 8 points; and Nebraska is at 35%, down 4 points."

An estimated 92% of winter wheat had emerged as of Sunday, 1 percentage point ahead of the five-year average of 91%.

Cotton harvest was estimated at 84% complete, 5 percentage points ahead of the five-year average of 79%.

Topsoil moisture for the lower 48 states was estimated at 38% very short to short and 62% adequate to surplus compared to 17% very short to short and 83% adequate to surplus last year. Subsoil moisture was estimated at 43% very short to short and 57% adequate to surplus compared to last year's 18% very short to short and 82% adequate to surplus.

The first weekly USDA NASS Crop Progress report for 2021 will be released on Monday, April 5, 2021.
