Warm Weather Drying Out Ohio Fields
Ohio Ag Connection - 04/18/2017

There were 2.7 days suitable for fieldwork in Ohio during the week ending Sunday, according to Cheryl Turner, Ohio state statistician with the USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service.

Warmer temperatures this week helped to dry out some soils and created more fieldwork opportunities. Farmers were able to top dress wheat, apply herbicides, and till fields where moisture surpluses had receded.

Planting was very limited this week. Producers anticipate much more progress with corn and other crops if the warm, dry conditions continue. Corn planted is still less than 1 percent statewide.

Many commercial vegetable growers were also able to plant.
