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.
