Nebraska corn condition takes a hit in this week’s progress report, soybeans show improvement

Nebraska crops and pastures could use a rain.

Farmer Randy Uhrmacher of Hastings tells Brownfield there’s been some relief recently. “I’ve got about .40 at my house.  Farms that are farther south that we farm in Webster County, we’re looking at more than an inch right now.”

USDA says extreme heat and drought caused corn conditions to decline last week to 57 percent good-to-excellent, a drop of seven percent.  Soybeans are 60 percent good-to-excellent shape

Urhamcer says the area is still at a deficit. “It gets our non-irrigated crops another few days down the road so they can pick up something else and still make a crop this fall.  It’s not going to be average I don’t believe unless it starts raining now.”

Winter wheat harvest is 84 percent finished.

Pasture and range conditions are rated 20 percent good-to-excellent.
