first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Soybean harvest leaped ahead under favorable conditions, according to the Great Lakes Regional Office of the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. There were 5.2 days available for fieldwork during the week ending October 4th, mainly between rains that fell at the very beginning and very end of the week. Statewide conditions were wetter and slightly warmer than usual, but most of the rain fell in the southern, southeastern and eastern portions of the state. The rapid progress in the soybean harvest echoes the bounds made in planting that started 21 weeks ago. Grain corn harvest continued, as the silage season has virtually elapsed. The moisture content of corn harvested averaged 20 percent, and the moisture content of soybeans harvested averaged 12 percent. The planting of winter wheat also progressed ahead of the five year average, with many growers seeing windows of precipitation to help germination.View the complete report herelast_img
