Ohio’s Crop Progress – July 29th, 2013

There were four days suitable for fieldwork in Ohio during the week ending July 28, according to the USDA, NASS, Great Lakes Region. Cool weather and spotty rains, especially in the more southern parts of the State, were generally beneficial to both corn and soybeans. Although there are a limited number of fields starting to show signs of yellowing due to continued rainfall, overall crop conditions are very good at the moment. In the northwest part of the State, vegetable crops have been suffering due to previous excesses in temperatures and moisture. Producers were able to make progress on oat harvesting and neared completion on the wheat harvest. Spraying of fungicides is underway statewide. The conditions have been favorable for hay cutting in many areas, while some in the south reported too much moisture to make any progress.

By the looks of the latest figures, corn and soybeans are right on pace or better with the 5-year average. See how the crops conditions are holding up in the latest report.
