Corn and soybean harvesting is wrapping up as we hear in the weekly crop report. Warm temperatures and less than an inch of rain in some areas this past week (our area received much more than that) gave producers ample time to get fieldwork done says Crop Statistician Mark Schleusener.
76 percent of soybeans have been harvest, up from 58 percent the previous week. 68 percent of the winter wheat has been planted, with 38 percent emerged. Average statewide topsoil moisture is rated at one percent very short, 7 percent short, 76 percent adequate and 16 percent surplus.
