Mixed report on spring growing season

UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  Last week's tornadoes and heavy downpours kept Wisconsin farmers out of their fields most of the time -- but it stayed warm, so the crops kept growing nicely. The National Ag Statistics Service said 79-percent of the Wisconsin corn crop remains in good-to-excellent condition.

After a cold spring the corn is already as high as 36-inches at Washburn County in the far northwest. Southern Wisconsin reports 12-to-30-inch corn.

All but 4-percent of the Badger State's soybean crop is planted, and 79-percent of it is rated good-to-excellent.

The state's first hay crop continues to make nice progress, with 82-percent harvested.

However, the rapid growth is causing some of it to mature too quickly, and lose quality. Obviously, soil moisture is not a problem. Officials said 39-percent of Wisconsin fields have surplus moisture, up from 15-percent a week ago.
