There were six days suitable for fieldwork in Ohio during the week ending September 15, according to the USDA, NASS, Great Lakes Region. Hot temperatures in the early part of the week gave way to cooler temperatures and light rain in the later part of the week. The Northeastern part of the State received slightly above average rainfall, with the rest Ohio remaining in dry conditions with only spotty rainfall. Crop conditions all declined slightly, but farmers are still happy with their crops and seem optimistic about the coming harvest. While most corn and soybeans in the state are a week to several weeks away from being ready for harvest, harvesting has begun in a few early planted soybean and corn fields. Most producers used their time this week to plant cover crops and make hay and corn silage.
