There were five days suitable for field work in Ohio during the week ending June 9, according to the USDA, NASS, Great Lakes Region. Producers took advantage of the continued warm weather and completed the planting of corn and oats, and neared completion of soybean planting. Some producers also replanted crops lost due to frost. Nitrogen application to corn also moved quickly, with some counties reporting that it was nearly finished. Producers baled hay, but many are behind their usual pace due to rain in previous weeks. Winter wheat appears to be in good condition, and farmers are preparing equipment for harvest. Some areas received rain this week, while others are hoping rain will come soon to keep soil moisture at adequate levels.
