Kentucky crops: Corn 95%, soybeans 87% harvested

Harvest is winding down for many Kentucky farmers.

Corn is 95% harvested and soybean harvest is 87% complete. 

Tobacco 68% stripped. 

Winter wheat is 83% planted, with 65% emerged, and 72% rated good to excellent. 

Pasture conditions are stressed due to dry and warmer-than-usual weather.  Occasional frosts have stunted pasture growth and just 25% rated good to excellent.  Hay stocks are lower than normal, as producers have had to rely on hay earlier than usual.

Topsoil and subsoil moisture are 43% adequate and 1% surplus.
