Wisconsin News
-- Last weekend’s cool weather was not enough to slow down the Wisconsin corn crop.

Last weekend’s cool weather was not enough to slow down the Wisconsin corn crop.

Officials say 20-percent of the corn-for-feed has been chopped, 10 points ahead of the average for the past five years. And more would have been chopped if it wasn’t for the wet ground. The corn is still maturing ahead of schedule, and 84-percent of it is rated good-to-excellent.

Also, soybeans are turning color ahead of schedule – and 83-percent of the crop is good-to-excellent. About 80-percent of Wisconsin farm fields have adequate soil moisture. Sixteen-percent have surpluses.
