Snow fell across the entire State, accumulating in the west about 2 to 3 inches and in the north about 3 to 8 inches, according to Cheryl Turner, state statistician, USDA NASS, Ohio Field Office. Temperatures averaged a chilly 10.3 degrees cooler than normal last week, putting the State average below freezing. There were 3.5 days suitable for fieldwork during the week ending Sunday.

Corn progressed to 75 percent harvested, an increase of 10 percentage points from the last report and was 12 points behind the 5-year average. The average corn moisture content was 20 percent, unchanged from the previous report. Soybeans inched forward to 90 percent harvested, an increase of 4 points over the previous report, and was only 5 points behind the 5-year average. The average soybean moisture content was 14 percent, unchanged from last week. Winter wheat was at 95 percent emerged, which was 5 points ahead of the 5-year average.

Operators were able to get into the fields to harvest late in the week after a blanket of snow fell in most corn and soybean growing districts. If operators were done with harvest or weren't able to harvest specific fields due to snow accumulation, they performed other tasks such as tilling fields and installing drain tile.
