Wisconsin’s harvest rolls along

Harvesting remains in full swing for Wisconsin farmers as dry and warmer-than-average weather helped keep equipment moving. 

USDA reporters say 27% of the state’s soybeans are now in the bin.  Ninety-seven percent of the soybeans are coloring with 80% dropping leaves.  Forty-nine percent of the soybeans are in good to excellent condition, the same as last week.

Wisconsin’s corn for grain harvest is 9% finished, while the corn silage harvest is 83% complete.  USDA says 95% of the state’s corn has dented with 76% of the crop mature, which is equal to the five-year average.  Fifty-one percent of the corn is reported as good to excellent.

Potato harvesters are slightly ahead of average with 80% of the crop in.

The fourth crop of alfalfa is 95% finished, and about 12 days ahead of average.

Wisconsin’s topsoil moisture is 1% surplus, 57% adequate, 31% short, and 11% very short with dryer subsoil readings.

USDA reporters say fall tillage is now 15% finished, which is three days behind average.  A lot of winter wheat has also emerged.
