Ohio’s Crop Progress — October 10, 2017

Rain brought much needed relief to dry areas but brought harvest to a standstill, according to Cheryl Turner, Ohio State Statistician for the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. There were 4.9 days available for fieldwork for the week ending October 8, 2017. Rains stopped most field activity but soils were so dry it was absorbed with little or no runoff or standing water. Harvest was progressing well for soybeans and corn but at a slow pace. Rain was favorable to winter wheat emergence and some planting was done when the weather permitted. Average grain moisture for corn harvested was 20 percent, and soybean moisture was at 11 percent. The wet weather was very welcomed and improved soil and pasture conditions.
