It's beginning to feel like fall

Producers are cutting silage for the year.
For the week ending September 14, 2014, below normal temperatures coupled with rain in the east and light snow in western portions of the State slowed fieldwork activities, according to the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. Moisture accumulations across the southeastern third of the state were an inch or more with lesser amounts elsewhere. Frost was recorded during the week. Winter wheat seeding continued in western counties.

The number of days considered suitable for fieldwork were 3.8. Topsoil moisture supplies rated 3 percent very short, 19 short, 71 adequate, and 7 surplus. Subsoil moisture supplies rated 8 percent very short, 24 short, 65 adequate, and 3 surplus.

 Corn conditions rated 2 percent very poor, 6 poor, 19 fair, 51 good, and 22 excellent. Corn dented was 88 percent, equal to last year, but behind 92 average. Corn mature was 29 percent, ahead of 14 last year, but near 28 average.

Data for this news release were provided at the county level by USDA Farm Service Agency and UNL Extension Service.
