Ohio Crop Progress — April 30, 2018


Field Preparation in Full Swing

There was a flurry of field preparation last week in between the scattered rain showers. There were 2.6 days suitable for fieldwork in Ohio during the week ending April 29, according to Cheryl Turner, Ohio State Statistician with the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. Topsoil and subsoil moisture dried out a bit and showed signs of improvement from last week while soil temperatures remained the same as the week before. Oats planted continued to progress as quickly as possible while oats emerged were spotty and uneven due to mild weather and some soggy soil. Corn and soybean planted progress finally reached 1 percent last week, but overall planting progress was well behind the 5 year average.
