Despite a break from Daily Downpours this past week, the wet conditions continued to limit fieldwork as we hear in the weekly crop report. Just an average of three days were suitable for fieldwork, but crops made some nice progress says State Crop Statistician Doug Hartwig.
56 percent of soybeans are blooming and 16 percent are setting pods. Winter wheat harvest increased to 91 percent complete. Average statewide topsoil moisture is now rated at one percent short, 55 percent adequate and 44 percent surplus.
