Crop Report: October Temps Averaging 10 Degrees Above Normal
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 10/13/2021

Temperatures were above average once again last week across the state with many areas 10 or more degrees above normal for this time of the year. The Wisconsin Ag Statistics Service said precipitation was near normal for most of the state, with the notable exception of a Friday storm centered in Taylor county that dumped over eight inches. The weekly crop report also noted that farmers took advantage of the weather to harvested corn, soybeans, hay and potatoes.

Topsoil moisture condition levels were rated eight percent very short, 11 percent short, 77 percent adequate and four percent surplus.

Reporters say the corn for grain harvest is 24 percent complete--six days ahead of last year and 11 days better than the five-year average. The all but five percent of the corn for silage has been chopped across the state.

Nearly half of the soybeans have been combined in Wisconsin at 47 percent complete. That's two days ahead of last year and more than a week ahead of average.

Winter wheat planting reached 74 percent complete, with 47 percent of the crop emerged.

And farmers have 30 percent of their expected fall tillage wrapped up.
