Wisconsin nears the end of harvest

Wisconsin farmers are nearing the end of the harvest season.

USDA reporters say the corn for grain harvest is now 78% finished, which is about a day ahead of the five-year average. Corn moisture levels this past week averaged 20%.

Wisconsin’s soybeans are now 94% harvested, with most of southern Wisconsin finished and still some combines rolling in the northern half of the state.

Cranberries and potatoes are also about wrapped up.

Ninety-four percent of the winter wheat has emerged, with 65% of the new crop reported to be in good to excellent condition. That’s down 3% from last week.

Fall tillage is 63% finished, or about two days behind average.
