Wetness continues to slow Ohio farmers


Continued wetness is slowing down Ohio farmers.  USDA reporters say the state’s moisture levels are 52% adequate and 47% surplus, and that is making it hard for farmers to finish tillage and planting.

As of Sunday, 72% of Ohio’s corn is planted with 51% of the crop emerged.

Fifty-six percent of the state’s soybeans are in the ground with 29% of them emerged.

Ninety-six percent of the oats are now planted and 86% of the crop has emerged.
