Planting progress moved closer to five year averages for most crops, according to Cheryl Turner, Ohio State Statistician with the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. There were 4.7 days suitable for fieldwork in Ohio during the week ending June 10. Fields and pastures had begun to dry out early in the week followed by rain showers later in the week. Producers who finished planting or who finished applying fertilizers and herbicides to fields during the first part of the week welcomed the rain. Corn planting wrapped up for most producers and soybean planting moved closer to completion as well. Oats were nearly all emerged and the crop reported to be in good to excellent condition increased over the previous week. Winter wheat condition remained similar to the previous week while intermittent wet weather proves challenging for those cutting Hay.
