Dry weather brought opportunities for producers to get back into the fields and get some planting done, according to Cheryl Turner, Ohio State Statistician with the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. There were 4.6 days suitable for fieldwork for the week ending June 4th. Southern Ohio was the driest while Northeast Ohio got the most rain. Conditions reduced soil moisture surpluses, but some remaining saturated fields, and needs for replanting delayed the completion of corn planting. Corn condition is mostly fair to good, but warm temperatures and opportunities for side dressing is expected to give the crop a boost. Despite dryer conditions producers are still behind on first cutting of hay.
