Indiana wheat harvest wrapping up

Cool dry weather last week provided farmers the opportunity to get fieldwork finished.  Farmers spent much of the week harvesting wheat, making hay and spraying crops.  According to the latest crop and weather report, 92 percent of the state’s wheat crop has been harvested.

The corn crop is advancing as 69 percent of the crop has silked and 76 percent of the crop is rated good to excellent.  Seventy percent of the beans are blooming and 32 percent are setting pods; 72 percent of the crop is rated good to excellent.

In other crops around the state, the second cutting of hay is beginning to wrap up as 79 percent is now complete and 66 percent of range and pastures are rated good to excellent.
