Rains slow TN harvest progress

Most producers across the state received much-needed precipitation.  Corn and soybean harvest were slowed due to the rain, and producers are still reporting above-average yields for both corn and beans.  The rain did help some pasture conditions, but several cattle producers have already started to feed hay.

According to the latest crop report, 92 percent of corn and 50 percent of soybeans have been harvested.  Thirty-five percent of the cotton crop has been harvested and 93 percent of the crop is opening bolls. 

Twenty-three percent of winter wheat has been planted and 7 percent has emerged.

Just 12 percent of pastures are rated good to excellent.

Topsoil moisture is rated 48 percent adequate to surplus.  Just 37 percent of subsoil moisture is called adequate to surplus.
