U.S. Pea Harvest Pushing Forward

WASHINGTON - Jul 20/21 - SNS -- The field pea harvest in the United States continued to make progress during the past week, helped by continued dry and hot weather conditions, according to reports from USDA state level offices.

The proportion of the crop rated in poor or very poor conditions advanced from 43% to 47%, good to excellent slipped from 14% to 13% and the proportion considered in fair condition dropped from 37% to 34%
