Rain and moisture levels continue to slow corn combining in Wisconsin. As of Sunday, 74 percent of the corn for grain is harvested, a 12-point improvement over the last week but still 5 points behind the five-year average. Many are still reporting moisture levels in the 20s and 30s.
Soybeans are 93 percent harvested, a 7-point increase for the week and 5 points behind the five-year average for this date.
Topsoil moisture is now at 65 percent adequate and 17 percent surplus on a statewide basis but the Northeast District has 52 percent surplus and the East Central District is 58 percent surplus. Heavy storms halted any fieldwork in the southeastern part of the state on Sunday. Some reporters say they will have to wait for the ground to freeze to finish up the harvest.
