Crops benefit from late-summer rain

UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  Wisconsin crops are getting a boost from some much-needed rain. The National Ag Statistics Service said most of the state got 1-to-3 inches of rainfall last week -- and the percentage of farm fields with adequate topsoil moisture jumped to 77-percent as of Sunday, up from 53-percent the week before.

Some places got too much rain -- like Rusk County, which had ten inches last week.

The Wisconsin corn crop is maturing a bit faster, but it's still behind schedule. Even so, 68-percent of the state's corn is in good-to-excellent condition. Soybeans are developing normally, and 69-percent are good-to-excellent. The oat-for-grain harvest is being schedule. It's at 64-percent, well below the norm of 86.
