Dry Conditions Continue

Hot and dry conditions prevailed throughout the week causing stress to crops and livestock, according to Cheryl Turner, State Statistician with the USDA, NASS, Ohio field office. There were 6.6 days suitable for fieldwork in Ohio during the week ending July 15. Wheat harvest and straw baling were in full swing with the dry weather. Hay harvest was doing well with second cut for both alfalfa and other hay well underway. Oats were maturing rapidly with the hot weather. Corn and soybeans overall remained in mostly good condition. Pastures were experiencing some stress due to high temperatures and loss of soil moisture. Little to no rain allowed opportunities for fieldwork. Field activities included spraying of fungicides and herbicides, hauling manure, and performing tillage operations.
