Some Wisconsin farmers made planting progress last week

Many Wisconsin farmers spent their weekend in the field, but USDA reporters say there is still a lot of work to do.

In the week ending Sunday, Wisconsin farmers completed 7% of their corn planting and 6% of the soybean planting.  About 30% of the oats are planted and 50% of the potatoes are in the ground.  That’s around six days behind the average for soybeans, 11 days behind the average for oats and corn, and only a day behind the average for potatoes.

Sixty percent of Wisconsin’s hay is in good to excellent condition, and pastures improved over last week.

More than 89% of the state’s topsoil and subsoil moistures are in adequate to surplus levels.
