The state crop-weather report shows that 19 percent of the state’s corn crop has been harvested, compared with 95 percent at this time last year and 49 percent on a five-year average. Soybeans are 80 percent harvested, on par with the five-year average of 83 percent. (Carolyn Lange/Forum News Service)
