Ohio’s Crop Progress — October 30, 2017

Showers at the start and end of the week slowed harvest progress, according to Cheryl Turner, Ohio State Statistician for the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. There were 3.7 days available for fieldwork for the week ending October 29, 2017. Cool, wet weather at the start of the week was enough to keep corn harvest behind the 5-year average by 13 percentage points while soybean harvest remained 2 percentage points behind last year. Average grain moisture for corn harvested was 18 percent and soybean moisture was 12 percent. Frost affected much of the state in the middle of the week, ending the season for some vegetable producers and road side stands. Winter wheat, hay seedings, and cover crops were reported to be in good condition.
