Ohio crop update: Fieldwork progresses

REYNOLDSBURG, OH -- Last week's weather allowed for fields to dry out and field work to continue, according to the USDA, NASS, Great Lakes Regional Office. There were 4.3 days suitable for fieldwork for the week ending June 7.

Heavy rains two weeks ago forced many to spend the week replanting corn and soybeans. Hay making was underway as hay growth demanded it although damp wet conditions weren't ideal for dry haymaking. Wheat continued to go through heading and flowering stages. Spraying and side-dressing continued last week as well; producers are still waiting to determine if disease will spread from the rains two weeks ago.
