Despite wet conditions this week, a lot of the planting was able to be completed, according to Cheryl Turner, Ohio State Statistician with the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. There were 4.3 days suitable for fieldwork in Ohio during the week ending June 3. Wet conditions caused some delay in field work. Some areas could use rain, but others have a surplus. Warm temperatures also continued this week which helped boost crop growth and condition. Corn and soybean stands are emerging nicely.
There were a few reports of replanting. Oats planting is complete. Hay making was delayed by wet weather. Spraying and side dressing of corn continued this week.
