Ohio’s Crop Progress — October 23, 2017

Dry weather accelerated harvest progress for many field crops, according to Cheryl Turner, Ohio State Statistician for the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. There were 6.2 days available for fieldwork for the week ending October 22, 2017. Dry, warm weather for much of the previous week allowed producers to gain much ground for harvesting soybeans and corn.

Final hay cuttings are coming off of fields. The warmer and drier weather provided a slight downgrade in pasture condition.
