A cool, damp and windy week slowed Nebraska’s harvest this past week. Producers in western counties are struggling to harvest lodged crops, but statewide, corn harvest is 94 percent done. Normally it’s only half done by now. The soybean harvest is 98 percent complete. It’s about 85 percent finished by now on average. Some winter wheat fields were reseeded due to poor stands and wind damage. Emergence is over two weeks behind normal. Sorghum harvest is 85 percent done, ahead of the 41 percent done by this time normally. The sugar beet harvest continues out west. Concerns about reduced forage supplies continue to burden livestock producers.
