Harvest Continues Despite Cold Weather
Temps below normal, but Corn Belt is dry in most parts
Many crops are done with harvest, but two big ones are still incomplete, reports AgWeek.
Corn and soybean harvest in the U.S. have been delayed from the start but are now in the final weeks.
The USDA reports progress weekly, and showed that the soybean crop was 75% complete while corn is 52% complete. Both of these are lagging the normal pace.
At this date, soybean harvest is usually about 80% done and corn is usually around 75% done. Things have sped up in the last week with weather conditions drying out.
Looking ahead, temperatures are expected to be below normal, but this is not as big of an issue as things should be dry in most parts of the Corn Belt.
