Ohio Crop Progress – April 8, 2019

There was little precipitation across the State last week yet many fields remained wet according to Cheryl Turner, State Statistician, USDA NASS, Ohio Field Office. There were 1.6 days suitable for fieldwork in Ohio during the week ending April 7. Field equipment was readied and some top dressing of winter wheat occurred. There were reports of winter wheat remaining dormant in the northern half of the state while some stands greened up closer to the south. Pastures were slowly turning green and operators were beginning to assess grazing conditions. Manure pits and lagoons needed to be emptied but dry, warm weather was necessary before this could occur. Operators planted oats at a quick pace during the short time they were able to get in the fields.
