Corn Planted = 7%
Soybeans Planted = 1%
There were four days suitable for field work in Ohio during the week ending May 5 according to the USDA, NASS, Great Lakes Region. Temperatures were significantly above normal throughout the state, which, along with low precipitation, helped dry fields to the point that many farmers were able to make some progress in planting. Farmers are also spraying and working the ground in preparation for corn and soybean planting, which most farmers have not yet started. Planting of oats is moving quickly, with some farmers reporting 100% of planned acres planted. Due to the high amount of precipitation in previous weeks, winter wheat and pastures are looking healthy, but many reporters note that growth has been slow.
