A mostly dry week allowed Wisconsin farmers to continue harvesting and some fall tillage. USDA reporters say 97% of corn is in the dent stage with 85% mature. The corn-for-grain harvest is now 7% finished, and corn silage is 77% finished, each a day off average.
Ninety-two percent of the soybeans are dropping leaves, and the soybean harvest is 37% finished with most of that harvest activity in the southern part of the state. The crop is reported as 75% good to excellent.
