Scattered storms limited Ohio farmers from fieldwork last week.
USDA’s National Ag Statistics Service reporters say field conditions were largely favorable but temperature fluctuations deterred farmers from planting.
Sixty-one percent of Ohio’s oats are planted with 19% emerging. Just six percent of the state’s corn and soybeans have been planted.
Eighty-four percent of fields have adequate topsoil moisture and 11% have surplus moisture.
Wheat stands are greening and have favorable development with 69% of the wheat jointing.
