Weekend rains slowed Wisconsin’s harvest

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.
