Harvest Progress Dampened
Wet conditions kept combines out of the fields again last week, according to Cheryl Turner, State Statistician, USDA NASS, Ohio Field Office. There were 2.1 days suitable for fieldwork in Ohio during the week ending November 25. Most operators were waiting for the ground to freeze in order to harvest remaining corn and soybeans. The average moisture content of corn harvested last week was 17 percent and the average for soybeans was 16 percent. The winter wheat crop was rated 62 percent good to excellent condition.
