Field Crop Progress Stays Ahead of Schedule

Corn continued to see faster than average kernel development last week, according to Cheryl Turner, State Statistician, USDA, NASS, Ohio Field Office. There were 4.3 days suitable for fieldwork in Ohio during the week ending August 12. Soybean pods were also filling faster than average due to timely rains and warmer than normal temperatures last week. Rapid corn and soybean development were accompanied by slight increases in good to excellent condition ratings for soybeans and pastures. Oats harvested moved closer to completion in between the rainfall and progress remained ahead of the 5-year average. Hay continued to be cut close to last year’s pace.
