Wisconsin's corn crop behind schedule

UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  Wisconsin's corn crop is still not maturing as fast as it should, due to relatively dry weather and cooler-than-normal temperatures. Officials say the percentages of corn in the silk-and-dough stages are below the averages for the past five years. It rained and hailed someplace in Wisconsin almost every day last week -- but the showers were spotty, and 33-percent of the state's farm fields are short to very short of moisture. That's 10-percent higher than a week ago.

Almost two-thirds of the fields have adequate moisture. Only 3-percent report a surplus.

Maturity levels for Wisconsin soybeans are ahead of a year ago. 71-percent of the beans are rated good-to-excellent.

22-percent of the state's third hay crop is made, which is behind schedule by about 6-percent. 84-percent of the hay is rated good-to-excellent.
