Wet Conditions Prevail

Conditions were very dry at the beginning of the week but ample rains were received by week’s end, according to Cheryl Turner, State Statistician, USDA, NASS, Ohio Field Office. There were 4.4 days suitable for fieldwork in Ohio during the week ending September 9. Soybeans continued to drop leaves and remained in good to excellent condition. Pastures and hay received some much needed rain. Fields were growing and greening from the new moisture. Harvest was delayed in some areas due to continued rainfall. Corn for silage harvest made headway despite widespread rains. There were little opportunities for haymaking last week. Some areas subsequently had concerns of flooding. Rain also delayed livestock and manure management activities.
