Corn and soybean progress is moving right along as we hear in the weekly weather summary and crop report. After a week of about normal temperatures and rainfall, 95 percent of soybeans are setting pods says Crop Statistician Mark Schleusener.
94 percent of corn has reached the dough stage and 63 percent is in the dent stage. 76 percent of the corn crop is rated in good to excellent condition. Statewide average topsoil moisture improved slightly to 8 percent very short, 26 percent short, 63 percent adequate and 3 percent surplus.
