Wisconsin’s corn harvest continues
Wisconsin’s farmers are continuing to harvest corn and work on fall tillage. USDA reporters say statewide, 77% of the corn for grain harvest is complete, and the average moisture content is 19%. As many people would suspect, the southern counties are farther ahead, with 86% of the crop harvested in both the southeastern and southwestern corners of Wisconsin. Southcentral Wisconsin’s farmers have 84% of the corn in the bin. The north-central area of the state has seen slower progress with only 52% of the corn for grain harvested.
Much of the state saw snow arrive last week, but 95% of the winter wheat emerged before the cold temperatures and snow arrived.
Soil moistures are about 75% adequate and 7% surplus.
Fall tillage is now 77% complete, about three days behind last year.
