Corn silage harvest progresses

Corn silage harvest progresses

Below-normal temperatures and precipitation in Ohio last week helped crop conditions despite some dry areas.

The USDA says corn is now rated at 80 percent good to excellent with 90 percent in the dough stage, and 40 percent dented.  About 11 percent of corn has been harvested for silage.

Soybeans are 95 percent are setting pods, three percent dropping leaves with 76 percent of the crop in good to excellent condition.
