Corn Progress is surging ahead as we hear in the weekly crop report. 81 percent of corn is in the dough stage and 21 percent is in the dent stage. That compares to 8 percent at this time last year. 81 percent of the corn crop is in good to excellent condition, which is a slight improvement from the previous week. Crop Statistician Mark Schleusener now turns to soybeans.
Average statewide topsoil moisture dropped to 8 percent very short, 31 percent short, 59 percent adequate and 2 percent surplus.
