Ohio’s Crop Progress — November 7th, 2016

Rain slowed down some of the farming activities but warm sunny days afterwards made harvest and some tillage possible, according to Cheryl Turner, Ohio State Statistician with the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. There were 5.7 days available for fieldwork for the week ending November 6th. Corn harvest is progressing but many fields remain with high grain moisture levels. Fields with mold and re-sprouting issues continued to be observed. Some soybean growers are looking for frosts to help with soft ground and green stems. Winter Wheat seedings are almost complete and condition is rated at 84 percent good to excellent, compared to 65 percent last year, when topsoil moisture shortages were more of a factor. Moisture levels of grain harvested over the week averaged 18 percent for corn and 12 percent for soybeans.
