For the week ending November 13, 2016, unseasonably warm temperatures were again experienced and averaged six to nine degrees above normal, according to the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. Rain early in the week was confined mostly to south central and central counties, with totals generally less than an inch. Harvest activities made good progress, with many producers now done combining. With limited rainfall over the last month, dry soils were noted in a number of counties. There were 6.7 days suitable for fieldwork. Topsoil moisture supplies rated 14 percent very short, 38 short, 47 adequate, and 1 surplus. Subsoil moisture supplies rated 11 percent very short, 32 short, 56 adequate, and 1 surplus. 

Field Crops Report: Corn harvested was 93 percent, near 91 both last year and the five-year average.
