Ohio’s Crop Progress Report – September 12th, 2016

Producers are seeing the long term effect of early season drought despite sporadic rainfall received lately, according to Cheryl Turner, Ohio State Statistician with the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. There were 5.7 days available for fieldwork for the week ending September 11th. The week began hot and dry, but many areas accumulated well over two inches of rain by the weekend.

Soybeans were better able to benefit from recent rains and are progressing on pace with the five year average. Rains have not fully revived pastures in many areas.
