Wisconsin corn half harvested

Some of Wisconsin’s harvest is being delayed by higher moisture levels in the late maturing crops. 

USDA statisticians say the corn for grain harvest is 50% finished with moisture levels averaging 21%.  That’s two days behind average.  The corn condition remains 54% good to excellent, the same as last week.

Wisconsin’s soybean harvest is 83% finished.  That’s only a day behind average.

The winter wheat crop is now 97% planted, with 81% of that crop emerged.  That’s four days ahead of average.  USDA reporters say the crop condition is 67% good to excellent, two percent better than last week.

Fall tillage is now 45% finished in Wisconsin, two days behind average.

Recent rains have  brought topsoil moisture levels up to 12% surplus, 73% adequate, and only 12% short but subsoil moistures are still drier.
