Ohio’s Crop Progress — October 3rd, 2016

Considerable Rains Stalled Harvest Progress

Rain throughout the week in various counties prevented harvest and most fieldwork activities, according to Cheryl Turner, Ohio State Statistician with the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. There were 3 days available for fieldwork for the week ending October 2nd. Harvest was underway in many areas but was slowed down by the multiple rain showers received.

There was not much planting of winter wheat because of the wet conditions.
