Wisconsin harvest rolls along with good weather

Most of Wisconsin’s soybeans and a third of the state’s corn are in the bin.  USDA reporters say last week’s warm and sunny weather allowed farmers to get a lot of fieldwork done.

Eighty-six percent of the soybeans are harvested, which is about nine days ahead of the average.

The corn harvest is 37% finished, which is behind last year but only two days behind average.  The moisture content is averaging 22%.  Farmers tell USDA that 80% of the crop is good to excellent, which is an improvement over last week.
