Another unseasonably warm week allowed Wisconsin’s farmers to accomplish a lot of fieldwork, but the weekend rains slowed down the corn harvest.
As of Sunday, Wisconsin’s average topsoil moisture is 76% adequate and 6% surplus, with only 16% of the land short on moisture. Subsoil moistures are similar.
The corn for grain harvest in Wisconsin is 55% finished, with the average moisture content around 20%. Seventy-nine percent of the state’s corn is in good to excellent condition.
