Ohio’s Crop Progress — July 18th, 2016

Dry weather allowed growers to make large gains on oat harvest this week, as well as continued progress on wheat harvest and hay cutting, according to Cheryl Turner, Ohio State Statistician of the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. There were 6.1 days suitable for fieldwork for the week ending July 17th. While hay cutting continues in earnest, the dry weather has slowed growth and lessened yield from second and third hay cuttings. There is some browning in pastures, as very little rain has fallen throughout the state. Corn and soybeans look good, but will need moisture as they continue to mature. Early planted soybeans are faring better than later planted soybeans. Some fields are looking stressed, but are still in good condition overall. Other activities this week included weed mowing and spraying fields.
