There were six days suitable for fieldwork in Ohio during the week ending June 23, according to the USDA, NASS, Great Lakes Region. Producers made significant progress on fieldwork this week due to the combination of low precipitation and favorable temperatures throughout the State. Producers harvested a significant amount of first cutting hay, and some were even beginning their second cutting. Producers also sprayed for weeds and side dressed corn. Some were able to begin harvesting wheat, but most were preparing equipment with the expectation of harvesting wheat in the next couple weeks. Row crops all remain in good condition, but will need rain in the coming weeks to avoid moisture stress.
