State Agriculture Crop Report

Tuesday, November 16th, 2021 -- 8:16 AM

With temperatures already treading slightly lower than average during the past week, Wisconsin saw between a trace to two inches of snow over the weekend.  WisconsinAgConnection.com reports that the state's agriculture department said on Monday's crop/weather report that some farmers were still working to harvest corn and soybeans, while others continued to till fields and haul manure.

Topsoil moisture conditions were rated five percent very short, 15 percent short, 77 percent adequate and three percent surplus.

As of Sunday, 86 percent of the corn for grain was harvested. That was even with last year, and two weeks ahead of the five-year average. Moisture content was reported at 17 percent.

All but three percent of the soybeans are now off the field. And 96 percent of the winter wheat was emerged.

Fall tillage was 73 percent complete across the state--four days ahead of last year and two weeks better than normal for mid-November.
