The harvest of corn and soybeans, as well as the planting of wheat and cover crops progressed until rains moved in mid-week, according to Cheryl Turner, Ohio State Statistician with the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. There were 4.1 days available for fieldwork for the week ending October 23rd . Temperatures remained well above average and helped with wheat emergence and the revival of hay fields and pastures. Growers switched between corn and soybean harvest to deal with variable crop and field conditions. Green soybean stems continue to be an obstacle for some. Mold and kernel sprouting in corn was observed in some areas. Ear droppage has also been noted. Moisture levels of grain harvested over the week averaged 18 percent for corn and 12 percent for soybeans.
