Wisconsin farmers continue harvest activities

Wisconsin’s corn and soybean harvests are getting underway in some regions.   USDA reporters say 1% of the corn for grain and 2% of the state’s soybeans are already in the bin.

More than 97% of the corn is in the dough stage or beyond and 90% is dented.  That’s about 12 days ahead of the five-year average.  Wisconsin’s corn condition is 75% good to excellent.

About 90% of the state’s soybeans are coloring with 52% dropping leaves, around nine days ahead of average. 

The potato harvest is past the halfway point with 86% of the crop in good to excellent condition.
