Ohio Crop Progress — April 23, 2018


More wet and cold weather passed through Ohio last week keeping many operators out of the fields. There were 1.4 day suitable for fieldwork in Ohio during the week ending April 15, according to Cheryl Turner, Ohio State Statistician with the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. Confined livestock continued to be stressed during the last cold, wet week. Oats were planted last week at a slower pace compared to the 5-year planted progress average. No reports of corn or soybeans going in the ground as planted progress continued to fall behind recent years due to poor weather conditions. Winter Wheat condition remains similar to last week and is rated mostly good to excellent, despite the weather.
