Above Normal Temperatures Keep Wisconsin Farmers Busy in the Fields

Tuesday, November 2nd, 2021 -- 9:01 AM


(Wisconsin Ag Connection) Temperatures were above normal across the state once again last week, with the southern two-tiers of counties receiving significant rain.

According to the Wisconsin Ag Connection, the latest crop/weather report from the Wisconsin Ag Statistics Service further noted that farmers kept busy combining crops and hauling manure when conditions allowed.

Topsoil moisture conditions were rated three percent very short, 15 percent short, 78 percent adequate and four percent surplus. As of Sunday, 61 percent of the corn for grain was harvested.

That was three days ahead of last year and 10 days further along than normal. Moisture content was reported at 19 percent. The soybean harvest is running about a week behind last year at 84 percent complete.

But that was about six days ahead of the five-year average. All but three percent of the winter wheat has been plated, with 85 percent of the crop now emerged. And the fall tillage is over half done statewide at 52 percent complete.
