Wisconsin crops maturing slightly ahead of average

The USDA says the past week was ideal for chopping corn.

Seventy-five percent of the state’s corn crop is in good to excellent condition. Ninety-one percent is in the dough stage, 65 percent is dented, and seven percent is mature.

Seventy-four of soybeans are rated good to excellent with 97 percent setting pods and six percent dropping leaves.

Potato harvest is about a third complete.
