Corn and Soybean Crops Still Looking Good Headed to Harvest

August 30, 2016

Both rainfall and temperatures were above average this past week, leaving average topsoil moisture at one percent very short, two percent short, 75 percent adequate and 22 percent surplus.

State Crop Statistician Mark Schleusener says 68 percent of corn is now in the dent stage.

“7% of acres are now mature compared to 16% normally. Condition of the corn crop improved slightly and is now rated 3% very poor to poor, 12% fair and 85% good to excellent,” said Schleusener.

94 percent of soybeans are setting pods and seven percent are turning color. 78 percent of the crop is rated in good to excellent condition which is about the same as the previous week.
