Ohio crops are under stress from recent hot, dry weather.

The USDA says corn is now rated 60 percent good to excellent, with 98 percent emerged.

Soybeans are 61 percent good to excellent with 94 percent emerged and one percent blooming. 

Winter wheat in Ohio is 86 percent mature and 17 percent harvested, ahead of last year and the five-year average, with a 70 percent good to excellent crop rating.

Corn, soybeans, and wheat crop condition ratings all dropped on the week.

The first cutting of alfalfa is 91 percent finished and second cutting has just started.
