Soybean Harvest Nearing Completion

Warm and windy conditions across most of the state dried both fields and crops. This allowed for an increase in harvest and tillage activities.

USDA reporters say the corn for grain harvest is now 78% finished, which is about a day ahead of the five-year average. Corn moisture levels this past week averaged 20%.

Wisconsin’s soybeans are now 94% harvested, with most of southern Wisconsin finished and still some combines rolling in the northern half of the state.

Ninety-four percent of the winter wheat has emerged, with 65% of the new crop reported to be in good to excellent condition. That’s down 3% from last week.

Fall tillage is 63% finished, or about two days behind average.
