2% of Michigan corn, 6% of soybeans planted

Michigan producers had a small window to continue fieldwork last week due to cold and wet weather conditions.

The USDA says as of Sunday 2% of the state’s expected corn crop has been planted, behind the five-year average pace of 7%.

Six percent of soybeans have been planted, near the five-year average of 7%.

Twenty-one percent of the expected winter wheat crop has jointed, and 64% of the crop is in good to excellent condition.

Sugarbeet planting reached 76% completion, ahead of the five-year average of 45%. Fifteen percent of the crop has emerged.

Other activities during the week included fertilizing where conditions allowed, spring tillage, and spreading manure.
