Cool, dry weather across much of the state allowed for producers to continue their rapid pace for corn and soybean harvest. The cooler temperatures and lack of rain for most of the state provided an average of 6.1 days suitable for field work.
Corn harvest continued its quick pace with 54 percent of the crop now being harvested. Corn harvest was 19
percent complete at this time last year while the five 5-year average for this time period is 23 percent. Ninety-five percent of the corn crop is now mature.
Soybean harvest has begun in many areas around the state and 8 percent of the crop has been harvested so far, compared to 3 percent at this time last year and the 5-year average of 9 percent.
Five percent of the winter wheat crop has been planted.
Pasture conditions were rated at 19 percent very poor, 25 percent poor, 37 percent fair, 18 percent good, and 1 percent excellent.
