LINCOLN, Neb. — Nebraska farmers are nearly done with this year’s wheat harvest, and the state’s corn crop is in good condition.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture said Monday that the state’s farmers have been helped by the recent dry weather, and the wheat harvest is now complete everywhere except for the northern Panhandle.

About 95 percent of the wheat harvest is complete, which is slightly behind the average of 98 percent at this time of year.

About 84 percent of the state’s corn crop rated in good or excellent condition.

Seventy-seven percent of the soybean crop is also in good or excellent condition.

The state’s pasture and rangeland also appears to be in good shape with 90 percent of that land rating in good or excellent condition.
