USDA CROP RATINGS as of JULY 5, 2009
according to USDA Weekly Crop Weather

The northern production region needs more heat units. The sunflower crop is late and temperatures have been below average in most of the production region. Parts of the High Plains, especially northern Colorado, have been getting an unseasonable amount of rainfall. In some cases it has delayed sunflower planting and winter wheat harvest. Double crop planting is ongoing in Kansas with 90 percent of the crop planted while 63 percent of the crop is planted in Texas according to USDA. Generally, soil moisture remains good to excellent throughout the entire sunflower production region.
