Rain arrives for dry Wisconsin crops

Dry conditions with above-normal temperatures dominated Wisconsin’s weather last week.  USDA reporters say the state received significant rainfall Thursday and Sunday, but the amounts of rain varied around the state.  They say it is still too early to tell how crops and pastures will recover after getting the much-needed rain.

Topsoil is still 34% short and 19% very short with 46% of the state having adequate moisture.

Corn condition dropped two points to 69% good-to-excellent.  Soybeans fell three points to 62% good-to-excellent.

First crop hay is nearly done, and USDA reporters say 11% of second crop has been cut.  Oats, winter wheat, and potatoes are all the same or slightly improved over last week.
