There were 0.6 days suitable for fieldwork in Ohio during the week ending May 5. There were multiple reports of zero days suitable for fieldwork last week. There had been some additional flooding and soils were extremely saturated, causing more delays in the planting season. Winter wheat condition remained mostly fair and there were concerns of weed pressure due to the wet weather. There was very little opportunity to get any corn or soybean planting done last week.
