Wisconsin harvest activity continues

Wisconsin farmers had good weather early last week, allowing combines to roll and some fall tillage and planting work, too.

USDA reporters say 98% of the soybeans are dropping leaves, and harvest is 69% finished.  Harvest is about four days ahead of average.

The corn for grain harvest is now 24% finished in Wisconsin, which is two days behind average.  The average moisture content for the week was 23%, and 50% of the corn crop was reported as good to excellent.  The corn silage harvest is 96% finished, which is a week ahead of average.

The cranberry harvest is underway.

Wisconsin’s potato crop is nearly all harvested, with less than 5% still in the ground.

Wisconsin’s fall tillage is 30% finished, which is two days behind average. 

Eighty-six percent of the winter wheat crop is planted with 61% of the wheat already emerged.

A rainy forecast is expected to slow harvest activity this week in much of Wisconsin.
